Last night Caden told me we should try something new in the house, intrigued as to what he meant I asked him what he would like to try.
He said he wanted to make a new rule. Instead of getting ice-cream (one scoop in a small cone) for eating ALL of his dinner he wanted to get ice-cream for having a bath... I told him that I make the rules in this house and that it wouldn't be changing any time soon. Unfazed he told me that it wasn't fair and that I should share in making the rules to make things more fun... This made me laugh a little. But no rule changes were implemented.
You might not agree with our ice-cream if you eat all your dinner rule, but since implemented we have had some pretty pleasant dinner experiences. There has been hardly any "I don't like it", or "I'm not hungry" and dinner has been getting eating 6 out 7 nights a week. So for now the bribery will stay in place...
What changes have your kids tried to implement? Where they a cheeky requested like my 4 year olds?
Better get organised for the kindy run! Have a great daya all!
