31 Days of Good Habits~ Day Nine

Now that we've completed our Morning Routine, we will be starting to build on our Afternoon and Before Bed Routines.

We do our Afternoon Routine around 4:30 in the afternoon.  This gives us a chance to pull ourselves and the house together before Daddy gets home from work.

The first thing we will be adding to the Afternoon Routine is~  Pick out pajamas

This habit jump starts our Before Bedtime Routine by having the pajamas reading to jump into.

Soooooo, now we have.....

I'm loving your Habit posts, Grace! You've totally inspired me and we've started "chore charts" diligently for the past 3 (wahoo!) days now.
I sure would love to say, "Okay girls, go do your chores!" and then blink and look to see them all checked off & completed perfectly...but alas, it doesn't work quite so magically. =) I'm finding I'm going to need to work WITH them for the habit to take shape and for them to build confidence & competence!
Any words on "working WITH your children"?

Also, do you still use your chore chart papers? I'm thinking I remember a post on them. Do you use any type of incentive or set a timer, etc? How do you work with chores not being done quickly, thoroughly, etc.

Of course these can be character/training issues...or even maturity issues, but I was just curious what you've found to work since you've been at this a lil longer than we have. =)

Keep up the posts!
