Update on Family Program to help me more!

Thursday, September 09, 2010

Well, we're on week 3, and the stakes have increase. Infractions are being charged $1 this week and I've already issued one fine.
Good news: the bathrooms are clean, clothes are no longer lying on the bathroom floor, laundry is being kept up with, folded and sorted into personal bins, and the garbage hasn't overflowed once. Still, I've had to do lots of reminders, but the hope is that one day, if I just stick to the program long enough, they will start to think of these things without being reminded. And even with reminders, I'm not doing it all myself!!! Yea!!!
It feels good to be doing something toward training them not to be "slobs!" Thanks to BlazingSword for the daily bathroom swishing tips! It's a great idea that's helping keep that area much better. I don't know why I didn't just think of it sooner!
You all are an awesome support group! Look forward to blogging with you!

    emoticon emoticon On getting things going in the right direction! My challenge is getting whoever is doing dirty dishes to look around! It's like they focus on the sink and don't see the bowl a foot away from them. I like the fine idea! Hmmmm... you are giving me ideas. emoticon

    Great job, even if you have to remind them, it's worth it!
