Today I failed as a parent.
Wow. That’s humbling.
My boys knocked robins eggs out of the next in the front yard and killed the babies (because they opened the eggs) well I lost my shit. I yelled so loudly every neighbor on my block came outside as I told my kids they had killed, KILLED baby birds. Yup, that me shitty mom at 1821. I sucked. I know we all lose it but my kids killed birds and I lost it.
I thought Emmy was being a butt for not eating or wanting a bath and she wanted to wok. Now she is fast asleep. Beautiful and fast asleep.
I know from the title this sounds either very gun rights or elitist, it’s neither! I am doing a 6 week running journal on how the Accountable Kids program has or hasn’t worked for us.
Some back ground- I have been pseudo implementing this program for 9 months…9 months of failure…on my part and confusion on my kids part
So, I ordered a starter kit- the book and a board, the boys already have boards so I got one for Emmy because she is eager to flip cards like her brothers!
I read the book, well enough to know I may have chose the wrong career field, I had no idea kids computed things sooo differently than adults. But hey, better late than never…
Minimizing to start!
The boys set the table and cleared it without being asked!! They have flipped morning cards and are being much more co-operative and happy!!
