I have a laundry basket for each child that I put their clean clothes in. To encourage them to put them away I put a TREAT at the bottom of the pile! (Connie Nokes-Roberts)
NIGHTMARE BEAR- a sutffed teddy bear, names by her children, is used when they need comforting. (Connie Nokes-Roberts)
Have “DATES” with your children. Make it a point to spend extra time with the older ones. Usually it’s 15 minutes her or there but it seems to make the difference. (Connie Nokes-Roberts)
MUSIC- A simple game everyone can do. Using a piano or xylophone, ask the children if the notes you play are going up, down, skipping or stuck (same note).
RX FOR TIRED EYES- Place a slice of refrigerated cucumber over your eyelids first thing in the morning…refreshing!
INTERRUPTIONS- When I am about to embark upon a project (like sewing) I will often cut-up some apples or other snack and prepared cups of juice and leave them on the kitchen table. When appetites are aroused, I point them in the right direction. Keeps my interruptions to a minimum! (Gail Signor)
REMEMBER- Does someone empty the wastebasket but forget to put a new liner back in? Leave the lines in the bottom of the can- it’s too convenient to forget! (Angela DiCicco)
