As most of you know, I am the mother of two beautiful, temperamental teenage daughters. So far, there isn't much I like about the teenage years. I am however liking that they are old enough now to accomplish chores around the house. It usually takes some creative parenting to get them motivated like....you will complete your chores or you will be grounded from all upcoming activities... or... we will deduct $5 from the debt you owe us after completing your chores...or... if you want those new jeans you'd better complete your chores... or my all time personal favorite...you need to earn your keep!
And after much grumbling, they eventually get the job done. It isn't always done the right way, but the point is, they are doing and learning and...sometimes having fun while doing it!
What's this ? ? I see smiles on their faces!
