A schedule within a schedule.

If you all remember, I scheduled screen time for everyone exactly the same, a way too generous (in my opinion) schedule for when the TV and computers can be on (for the kids) and the times they must be off. This is easier for me to keep up with. Lately, we've been having some squabbles over the living room TV because it has the X-Box, so today the kids sat down and hammered out a schedule of who gets the TV first each day and who gets it second and third. They based it on our old "Kid Of The Day" schedule which has been working for us for 7 or 8 years. Each kid had 2 days a week when they are first, 2 days when they are second and 2 days when they are third because each day has 2 days a week when they are "Kid of the Day". Thursdays are supposed to be parent's choice days but they've worked out some kind of schedule for that too. I'm thinking about having TV turn-off day on Thursdays for the kids, although that won't make me very popular around here!

Isn't it funny how kids can come up with such complicated schedules for things like than, yet they can't figure out that dirty socks go in the hamper? LOL

I should try a TV schedule. My kids cry and moan because we don't have a plasma. Apparently all their friends have it:/
