        It's  Summer/ Fall

      How to teach your children to contribute to the "family".  I'm putting this article on the toddler link at the top of my website because if you start using the principals to help your children learn how to do what needs to be done in the care and upkeep of your home, ie, learning to put toys away, and following parental requests without shirking their chores start early when they are old enough to understand your requests. If your children are older and you are already in a power struggle on this issue I am giving you a 4 step system that will help restore parental influence as quickly as possible.

Enjoy your summer!
