Have a few kids that are focus challenged - bought a few cheap timers and they work WONDERS for keeping them "on track" for doing homework, brushing teeth, packing lunches - and I don't have to nag NEAR the amount I used to! Setting a predetermined amount of time set for each activity helps.
Suggestions: 15 for afterschool snacks, 30 for spelling words, 10 for play times on computers... I have 4 under 13 (3 of which are in elementry) - so these times may not work for all - they all share 1 tv, 1 computer - by choice for the parents.. not them LOL - Even the kindergardener packs lunch!

After I lost the first 40 lbs, I realized that excerise can be fun, that motivation comes from within and with out, and that there r many ways to make a salad. Summers coming and the salads will come from my own garden. Hey, think of the K's that r used to work a garden. Thanks 4 all the support,
I can't do it without SPARKly people who keep me focused and accountable.104
