Enlist the Help of Others to Avoid the Running Out of Essentials (featuring Chore Cards)
Summertime. The long days, relaxing time with family and friends, no school, no worries, no problems….right? No. If you are a parent, you know that summer can be chaotic, tiring, and just hard. The first few weeks of our summer were fun…Daddy went to camps and we went to visit family and the boys and I really had a good time together. But then the Captain got sick and everything came to a halt. I felt like I either had to entertain the boys the entire day or they would be stuck in front of a screen until I forced them to move. So, I had to do something. We still use the reward system based on good behavior from two summers ago, but that just is not enough. The boys have been in school and need some sort of structure, even though all I want to do is fly by the seat of my pants. It’s what I do best, but it is not the best for the boys.
