The Bee Project, Day One
Okay, Zoe and Ace's fighting has gotten out of hand, so I was reading an article that quoted Ephesians 4:32 in it. I knew this was something I could possibly use to help the kids learn to get along. I brainstormed and came up with the above picture. It's a bee hive. Zoe and Ace each have five bees (Zoe's bees have bows and Ace's bees have hats) to start the day. If they fight with each other or Liam, then they have to give me a bee. If they have all five bees at the end of the day, they earn a bee buck. Five bee bucks equals a trip to the Dollar Store. No bee bucks equals a privilege taken away for not getting along with your brother or sister or both.
We are trying this and hopefully, it will keep me more diligent on catching the good sibling behavior and the bad sibling behavior.
Today is day one. They are excited about it but have both lost one bee as they were arguing while washing dishes.
I'll keep everyone posted on how it works!!
