Now I have to flipen rage because we the parents have been doing to many nice things for kids who just do not get it and take advantage. We have a give take system, the kids do things like chores and the return pay is parent willingness to drive all over kingdom come and take horses to many places or pay for an activity like wrestling. If they earned the money and payed for the activity themselves then they get to do it. So often our kids are making sure they pay their own money towards what they want to do. Or they are working really hard to keep the chores in and out of the house done so we are willing. Well somewhere along this summer some kids have forgotten that this is how our household motates. Today the balance got tipped way badly and there are some kids who are not going to get to wrestling camp tomorrow, didn't get to go to high school tech fun day. Tomorrows peewee 4-H is out for one and there are only two who didn't loose all the important doing things that they wanted to do. They actually helped the one who lost out on peewee to get his job finished after the Mom started to take the books that he had dumped to the local thrifty store. Pretty soon there is one who is not going to have a bed or pair of clothing to wear if he isn't having an attitude change.
Have you heard of James Jones it's a pretty good program and of course I tweak it to my way of doing a bit but if you have kids who think they should be handed a silver platter with everything on it Go have a really good looky it could save you a bundle either now or when they have to go to the detention center.

  1. Thanks for sharing the 7 things about yourself. Very interesting about the building of your own home. Your running goal and the achievements you have made towards that is excellent. I want to take up running as well -I am going to start with the couch to 5k program. I perfectly agree with your wisdom on children having to give before they take. I only have 3 and run out of patience so I admire your dedication with 7.
