Give Back

We started Ay's give jar a couple weeks ago.

Its going wonderful.

She can earn 2 coins a day by completing chores (making bed, feeding pets), being helpful, and no time-outs. She gets to choose what to do with the coins... give both, save both, or split them- 1 in piggy bank,1 in give jar. Some days she earns more. And she always chooses to put at least part in her jar.

I feel like we are teaching her so many lessons in one jar.

Sharing, Saving, Self Control, Decision making, Earning & Losing a reward.

We paid $30 to get the contents of a dead laptop back - mostly baby pics. It was worth it! We took it to RTC in Montgomery. Good luck!
