New Barrington Family Rules Update

I’ve had several ask about how the new Barrington family rules were going that I blogged about here.  I’ll let Kelly speak for herself, but it seems that we may be making some small progress in areas. 

 But, we are also doing quite well in regards to preparing for a good night out to eat thanks to our kids’ misbehavior 🙂 .  Last night we counted the jar.  I think we are up to $13 or something. 

 The only problem is that each infraction is $.25.  And in the jar we found a nickel and a dime.  So, one of our kids either 1) doesn’t know what a quarter looks like…which we highly doubt; or 2) we have a kid who is so ingenious they have found the loophole in our system…mom and dad aren’t checking what coin drops in the jar!

    13 x 4 = 52. That means there has been at least 52 infractions in your house. 52/3 = 17.1. This means that each child has done at least 17 infractions. My recomandation would be to take the money out of the jar and start a new period. That way you can compare the next period with the last.

  2. Samson says:

    Actually Alex I promise I have only given $1.50 this whole system.

  3. Miranda says:

    Would it be too predictable if I suggested Caleb was the culprit? 🙂

  4. Andrew says:

    Miranda is right Caleb is obviosly the culpri becuz Isaac wouldnt do it and Alex is too cute to do anything like that

  5. the wife says:

    On Andrew, Andrew…if you are this fooled by women already, you may be in trouble. I can assure you that Alex has been part of this scheme.

  6. Andrew says:

    now “the wife” it dissapoints me that u would think that innocent little Alex would have anything to do with it

  7. Andrew says:

    “the wife” it pains me that u think Alex has done something like this

  8. Tina says:

    Andrew, knock it off or I will make you put money in Sam and Kelly’s jar!

  9. Tina – OK…that’s the funniest thing I’ve heard all day! 🙂
