#trashouttuesday / raising responsible kids that learn how to set goals

the daily Starr trash out tuesday

We have a lot of stuff. Obviously.

Our kids are getting old enough to really learn responsibility in our home, so we’re trying something new.

We officially set a family goal this week.

Keep the playrooms clean every night before going to bed.

Our playroom upstairs is supposed to look like this:

Buuuuutttt most days it looks more like this:

Okay – well, that isn’t our house and I have no idea who that kid is, but YOU GET THE POINT! Right???

If our kids go 30 days with cleaned up toys, they can each invite a friend over for a sleepover.

If they go 60 days, we’ll take them to Chuck E. Cheese.

And if they make it 100 straight days, we’ll plan a trip to Carowinds!

It’s hilarious – Kylie reminded us before we even got home last night that the playrooms needed to be picked up!!! I love it!!!

Need help with something in your home? Enlist support from your family. Set a goal and then incentives to celebrate once you achieve your goals. When there is a goal to achieve, everyone works together and mama is a little less weary and tired. Amen!

 

PS – did you get my blog alert last night? Several people did not (including myself and Brian). Here’s a link to the post in case you missed it.

    • Thanks, Pookie! I’m not sure what happened last night. I sent just like I always do :/ I’m looking into a different system to send my alerts that is a little more reliable. And yes, this is the house in Monroe we were telling you about a few months ago! Just a little further out than you wanted to be 🙂
