So bribery has started working again in our house. In order to get rid of the nonsense that goes along with bedtime we've begun a sticker chart with all the steps to get ready for bed on it, and filling in the stickers as he goes. It's been a success for 2.5 weeks (and counting, I hope), he's earned a leaf blower and a remote control monster truck. This week he's aiming for a butterfly net. I know this isn't ideal parenting but spending some bucks on stuff is WELL worth getting rid of the agony of his bedtime antics. The plus side is these are more toys he actually wants to play with- always a bonus!
We are considering starting a separate chart for eating breakfast. Anyone have tips out there?
