We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand. ~Isaiah 64:8

She's got me pegged.

This is our privilege ladder. The kids move up and down it based on how they are behaving. (I'm happy to expound on this concept if anyone is interested, but I bet you get the general idea.)

It helps me not to have to remember what privileges each child has at various points during the day. All I have to do is look at the "ladder". While not the most natural consequences, it is natural to loose privileges when one doesn't abide by family rules.

So, this week my daughter (6) made ME a privilege chart:

As first, I wasn't sure if I liked this or not - but in truth it is really funny. In fact, Daddy did something funny, but a bit rude last night and we all agreed he should be "moved down a notch". :) We were all in stitches at that!

In case you can't decipher the drawings, my privileges are (the top being the highest level of privileges):

1) computer time
2) going on long trips
3) reading books
4) going around the world to China
5) long meetings
6) getting coffee
7) playing Wii

(the little smiley faces at the top are her daddy and me - she taped the drawings to magnets that can move up and down the chart)

Oh my, does she have me pegged!
