Great Idea to Help Your Children Want to Obey-

  A wonderful idea I came across at Family Volley-you can find the article in its entirety here.

What, You Have a Child Who Won't Obey? Here's a great idea.

Do you have a child who won't obey? Are you frustrated and looking for a solution?

Here's a great idea - Pediatrician Approved

Introducing the YES/NO CAN
How does it work?

Every time you observe your child doing something good, showing obedience, putting away a toy, being kind to their siblings, making their bed, or brushing their teeth write the word YES on a small piece of paper and put it in the can or jar.

Every time your child talks back, doesn't obey, throws a fit, or does anything "not good" write NO on a piece of paper and put it in the Can.

Your can will start to fill up with lots of pieces of paper.

Now, this is when it gets good.
When your child asks for something, or asks to do something. Consult the CAN. For example, "Mom, can I have a play date?" or "Mom, can I have a popsicle?"

Reach into the can and pull out a piece of paper. What ever it says is the answer to their question. If it has been a week full of disobedience, there is not a very good chance they are going to get what they want.
