This Mom Found Out Her Kids Were Late For School. What She Did About It Is Brilliant.

When your a parent, grounding your children can be one of the hardest things to do. Even though sometimes it has to be done, it can still take it’s toll on the parent. When blogger Lynette found that her kids were late for school one day, she decided to ground them and use it towards her advantage.  To get ungrounded, the kids must earn 500 points.  Chores such as “load dishwater” and “cook dinner” can earn them anywhere from 10 to 100 points.

Below is an image of a chore/point list:

Lynette says, “This worked out better than I could have ever imagined! My oldest son got right to work and earned his 500 points in one day. The other two are getting closer and working hard too! We had a nice dinner last night prepared by my son.”
