Last week we started an "incentive program" for Chase to help us solve a few tricky issues we have been facing: Chase does not like to go to school and Chase does not like to go to bed. Inspired by our friends (that's you, Saunders family!), we started a chart for Chase to win stars if he goes to school without getting upset, goes to bed happily, and gets himself dressed (thrown in as a gimme). Stars lead to a special surprise, which was ice cream last week.
Chase was into it. His moods in the morning and at bedtime improved! Yes! No crying and arguing = parents win. Ice cream = Chase wins. We are parenting pros.
Fast forward to this week when Chase says he does not care about stars or ice cream and he does not want to go to school.
