Does anyone else have children who fight over the smallest little things...like who gets to turn the TV on and off, or who gets to open the door when friends come over? I will never understand how turning on the Christmas lights can turn into an all-out temper tantrum -- but it does. Please tell me I'm not the only one who has to deal with these kinds of silly outbursts.
So in an effort to save my sanity, I came up with this chart idea which I finally sat down and made yesterday afternoon during craft time with the kids (click on the picture to enlarge it and see it clearer).
Every night before I go to bed -- if I remember -- I will rotate the pictures and go over it with the girls in the morning. It is my hope that, at least for awhile, the girls will think this idea is fun and will stop their bickering over some of these little things.
It's worth a shot!
