It’s Monday! Which means it’s time to add something new to the mommy book collection! Remember, this only works if you actually print them out and add them to your file. You don’t want to have to turn on your computer and do a search on Pinterest in your moment of need–chances are you will take the easy way out and do nothing at all (at least that’s what I would do).
To see previous week’s collections, go here: Collection of Printables for Kids
My daughter has recently started waking up in the middle of the night wanting to party it up with her 10-month old sister. I’ve started having flash-backs to my babysitting days when the kids that shared a room would just play and giggle and come out of their rooms repeatedly all night long. I have a feeling this might be in my near future (once Little #2 learns how to climb out of the crib).
Anyway, once the moment comes I doubt I’ll have time to make one of these, so I made one now: The Stay In Bed Punch Card. Who knows if it will even work, but kids love some positive reinforcement right? And what doesn’t work for one kid might work for another, so it’s going in the file!
If you need more inspiration, I like this article “Surviving the Bedtime Drama“
Parenting Punch Cards
This week I thought it would be fun to collect a bunch of parenting punch cards. Discipline can be rough, and typically when you find something that works it only lasts so long. Kids thrive on things that are new and exciting.
Do you use any punch cards in your home? Do any of them work for motivating your kids? What prize do they receive for a completed card?
