After reading several posts today of moms and the things they do with their kids, I have come to realize that I am a poopy mom. I need some advice from all the Super Moms out there which is all of you! Shelley has this great system going it seems and I would like to get to that point. She has a system where her girls have a timer and they get privileges according to the timer and there are no tangible prizes (i.e. toys, candy, etc.) which is what I have turned into doing and it isn't very effective I have found with Lauren, my youngest. My kids DO watch too much tv. I want this to stop, but don't know how to get it stop without there being World War III at my house. I put them to bed at 7:00 only to let them watch TV until 9:00. I know, I know, I should be shot into the mommy hall of no fame for this. It used to be that they fell asleep right after turning the TV on and I could go in and turn it off. Now, they have gotten to where they stay awake until I turn it off at 9:00. I need help and advice from the super mom's out there. I need alternatives to things that can keep my children busy while I'm busy besides TV. Yes, they do play but still. They do each have a TV in their room. Should I take them out and if so, how do I do this without them thinking they are in trouble? HELP!
