Wordless Wednesday [Family Rules]

see more by

Emma (my five-year-old) and I have had some power struggles this summer so recently I had to lay down the law with some family rules because this mommy had just HAD it!

So I made a chart of “Family Rules” with three things she is to work on each day and at the end of the day if she does a good job following them she gets a sticker.

{Incidentally, I have no idea if this is a good or bad discipline tactic, but sometimes you just have to try anything when you are at the end of your rope.}

Then one day last week she asked me for some paper and a pen to draw before I put Morgan down for a nap. When I came out I saw that Emma had stuck this to the wall right below her “Family Rule” chart.

Yes, this would be “Jennifer Chart” of “Family Rules.”  With rule number one being, “Listen to Emma.”

Oh my gosh you guys, this child gives me a run for my money, let me tell you. But I have to give her one for creativity!
