Parenting Tactic #1 – Withhold...then Reward
I get tired of fighting everyone…and I lack a whole lot of discipline myself
Last Sunday I decided to start.
I even relinquished the “no eating in the living room” rule for the afternoon.
You would think that I just Okayed the kids to get tattoos, and body piercings.
They were so excited to be eating and watching TV at the same time.
It's nice to see my kids really hungry for once
Typically we come home and eat right after church and I realize that nobody is really hungry because of all the fruit snacks and Sunday treats they get at church.
The kids ate and ate.
We all ate and ate.
Too laid back for a Sunday afternoon you say?
Sacrilegious you say?
I am still trying to obtain that balance between keeping the Sabbath Day Holy and ...
our usual hedonistic,
lazy Sunday afternoon ways.
So withhold...then reward - It makes a person humble and hungry.
