Rather than take away a privilege, my children earn their privileges. Everyday they are expected to cooperate. They can earn up to 9 sticks in a day (3 sticks 3x a day) If they earn 6/9 sticks they earn privileges for the next day. If not, the following day is very boring but they can try again!
I have found that some of the young ladies in my neighborhood could really use someone to hang out with. It is fun because they love helping me with what I am working on around the house (gardening, cooking, cleaning out my car) and I enjoy sharing tips and tricks they can use when they grow up.
