Re: To Have and To Keep - Staying Married with Kids

Ok, I got a reply from a post of a different forum.  Thought this was worth sharing....

 

"I set the timer for 30 minutes and sit the girls at their table and chairs.  Out come the "special markers" (the ones that only color on paper).  They are allowed to sit and color with the special markers while I get some things accomplished around the house.  If they do not color nicely and get along the markers go away for a week and they have to "assist" with chores."

 

This is the same gal that plans a picnic "dinner" in the backyard as a break from the norm. 

 

Have a good week!
