Fred sometimes would roll the trash can down if he thinks Rush forgot, I suggested we really needed to let Rush fail at some point, rather than being reminded--so we miss a garbage pick up, so what. The trouble was Rush kept remembering or we kept reminding him--we never got to test out the 'consequence' part of the lesson. So last week, after months of this, we didn't remind, Rush forgot and Fred didn't cover. Nevermind it was the same day Rush was sick in bed, he still forgot, and could have put his shoes on, responsibility is responsibillity, right?
He dudifully did all the dishes without complaint. So last Sunday, I'm waiting, waiting, will he remember the thrash? Darn he remembered without being reminded, no dishes relief for me this week!
