Losing your marbles over misbehaved children? A Guide to Discipline Plans

00:0000:00

Rewards, punishment, and consequences can be hard to keep track of while parenting older kids.  Not anymore!  With this step-by-step audio guide, you can have a functioning "token economy" in as little as 30 minutes!  Token economies are like jobs with paychecks for adults except instead of jobs and money, we use chores, points, marbles, and tickets.

This can be a structured and organized way to discipline children and keep track of rewards.  Have you ever thought to yourself..."man my kids are spoiled!"...or "I don't want them to think they don't have to work for what they have!"

This is the episode for you!  Get your calendars, notebooks, and clear jars ready...we are going to tackle HOW TO CREATE A DISCIPLINE PLAN for older kids!
