Grab A Button

Under the plan of heaven, the husband and the wife walk side by side as companions, neither one ahead of the other, but a daughter of God and a son of God walking side by side. Let your families be families of love and peace and happiness. Gather your children around you and have your family home evenings, teach your children the ways of the Lord, read to them from the scriptures, and let them come to know the great truths of the eternal gospel as set forth in these words of the Almighty.

WhAt I DoN't GeT OuT EaRLy???

Parker is in the 7th Grade this year. He also doesn't get to come home early like his siblings. Darn it!! He came home from school today and said I wish I could stay at school all day long. It's better than being at home. What??? I couldn't believe it!! Just Kidding! I remember those days too.

Well this year we made a deal with Parker that we would give him 10 Bucks for each A that he got on his report card and that If he got straight A's we would give him a Hundred Dollar Bill! Well I didn't really think this was gonna stick or even make a dent to say the least, but I am starting to think that money talks to this kid. He really has made a change this year and is worried about his grades and checks them online and makes sure they stay at a A. Of course, we as parents didn't make the challenge to him because of the money, but if it helps him and challenges him in school and he stays on top of things then I guess I'm all for it. I have to admit each child is different and I don't know if i'll offer this to my other children when they get older, We'll see.. Good Luck Parker!!
