Probably as many as there are families that care about it! Ha!
WE have decided to try the following approach for a while:
The MARBLE JAR:
~For every chore completed (to Mom’s satisfaction) on each child’s list, they may take one marble from MY jar & place it in their jars.
~Ana can have marbles removed for:
*Failing to do her jobs
*Leaving dirty clothes/shoes laying around
~When their respective jars are full, Nat gets to go out for dessert w/ Mom, Ruthie-dinner w/ Mom, & Ana-an overnight get-away w/ Mom.
So far (we have been at it now for about 48 hours), there are no dirty clothes laying around & jobs have all gotten done!
We shall see how well it continues!
Wish us luck!
