Severe Times call for Severe Measures.
I admit it, I am resorting to bribery.
We are REALLY out of sync on our chores around here. I thought of a new system but then realized...hey, our system works! We don't need a new system, we need to stick with it! So I am paying the kids. I am giving them a dollar for each day they do all their chores and 3 dollars for a bonus if they get the whole week done.
To be honest, my kids aren't really good with bribery. That doesn't motivate them. But I haven't found anything that DOES motivate them, so I'll try this again. I even promised a trip to the store of their choice next week.
Let's see how this goes.
(This post should be after the post I never wrote yesterday called: "I QUIT" where I called my husband at work and tendered my resignation. For some reason he didn't accept it and I am still here. So, I decided to keep me from feeling the need to quit, I had better hire more help. ;-) Hence, the bribery.)
