Job Jar

| Category: Parenting

Discipline: We have a job jar with simple (5 minute) jobs inside. Whenever our kids are not listening, not obeying, etc., we tell them "Job Jar". They must reach in and get a job and a timer, set it for 5 minutes, and do the job. It helps me not get so frustrated and it teaches them to do work and that there are consequences to wrong actions. The house gets a little cleaner in the process! Jobs might be: washing the windows, lint brush the couch, vacuum the stairs, read, learn a Bible verse, etc. We also have a slip of paper that says, "Mercy!" They love getting that one!
