Quoting the grace life:" That is what I say. Plus, if she doesn't earn her checkmarks on her chart, she can't play her leap pad or watch a cartoon....pretty much solves that problem. "
Quoting Drippy Hairymuff:" LOL. I have tried the check mark system. It doesn't work on Alyssa. Sometimes I have to get mean and ... [snip!] ... and threaten to throw toys away. This child is stubborn. And what's worse is I don't know is she gets it from me, or her dad. "
Quoting the grace life:" lol. We take toys away if they don't clean them up before bed. I don't play that game. Geesh, I sound so mean. "
Quoting Drippy Hairymuff:" You're lucky then. I thought something was up with Alyssa last night when I told her to go clean ... [snip!] ... room anymore, and her room is "Too messy to play blocks in." You'd think she would get the concept of cleaning her room. "
Quoting the grace life:" When K doesn't want to clean her room she goes in there and just falls asleep. It is infuriating. "
Quoting the grace life:" I beat them with the Bible until they listen. I thought you knew how we Christians worked? "I guess I forgot about the flagellation via bible for discipline
Quoting Drippy Hairymuff:" LOL. Alyssa is going through the whole "Being scared" phase, and does what she can to camp out on the ... [snip!] ... child. "GO. TO. YOUR. BED. Trust me. With all the smurf under your bed it isn't possible for a monster to fit under there. "
Quoting .Colleen.:" I guess I forgot about the flagellation via bible for discipline"
Quoting the grace life:" Ours crawl in our bed or on the couch from time to time. That doesn't bug us, I think we both enjoy those occasional cuddles. "
Quoting Drippy Hairymuff:" Of definitely. We just try not to allow Alyssa to crawl in bed with us when DH has to work the next ... [snip!] ... and then. I have been locking my door a lot more lately. I am trying to make my daughter understand the concept of knocking. "
Quoting the grace life:" Our kids aren't allowed in our room if we aren't there, but otherwise we don't care. "
