Child labor

Brandon dusted the ledge with Amanda's help...
Mirror cleanin' freak!

I figured out a way to get my kids to behave today, and even got some house cleaning out of them to boot! All it took was a point "system", and if they didn't have a certain amount of points we wouldn't go out to eat tomorrow. Points would be taken away for being mean to each other, for being snippy, for not staying on task with homework, etc. And...points were rewarded for good behavior! I added in some chores to round out the fun and they happily got some things done for me! This is not difficult...why didn't I think of it sooner?
