We have been having "Family Meetings" the last two Sundays, and we hope to make this a routine. The kids get to request some meals and activities, and everyone suggests new habits to get into, or old habits to break.
This past week have been working on a habit from last week which has not seen much improvement:
Don't put it down, put it away.
This week the emphasis is on:
When Mommy or Daddy tells you to do something, do it the FIRST time they say it. So now instead of repeating it, we say "I'm not going to repeat that" over and over.
And from Will, derived from recent experience:
Ask permission before doing experiments.
Don't lick syrup off the plate.
