What works…

Today we got almost everything done. The house is a mess, which is rare and all the hot headedness stopped by ten. So what works? Picture chore charts. Even for fully literate kids. Something about the animated to do version is better.
Time in. Putting an unattached child away doesn’t help unless they’re finding their cool. But sitting them in the middle of the room and carrying on with life as usual does. We started with the bottom stair. Now we use the couch.
Happiness. Take it when you can. So many days are discouraging. So parent whose fighting the good fight. I’m proud of all you do. Take a moment to be proud of you for one good thing.
