The boys have been having a pretty good afternoon. I made a new rule and it goes like this. If the boys fight in the car, either to or from school, they forfeit the time on the Xbox or Playstation. So far, I’ve only had to follow through once and the rest of the time, a simple reminder if things start going the wrong way.
The trick is to find something they like more than fighting with each other.
It’s working right now and I’m happy with that because even if it only works a few times, that’s a few more pleasant car rides than it would have been otherwise. ☺
