We have had some challenging behavior to deal with in our home. (Child's identity will be protected) Chris and I have decided to go "Back to the Basics" in our home and see if that helps.
*Eliminated the TV.... literally.... it is out in the garage
*Looked over the schedule.... get back on track
*Expectations Clearly written down
.......I wrote down the after school - evening schedule for all the children
....... If they complete everything without arguing or complaining then I will play a game with them from 7-7:30 before reading books (I still read aloud to all of the children. The younger 2 each pick out a story book and then I read a chapter out of the children's Bible for the older ones.)
Today went MUCH better and we had a fun game time!
