The sparkly butterfly, in this instance was face painting at the local show. A pink glittery butterfly painted on the face is all a little four year old needs to be happy. We fed a woolly sheep and visited the park which should have resulted in a happy sleepy girl. Unfortunately, all this activity resulted in two very naughty pink princesses of diva proportions. So, this week I am conducting an experiment to see how rewarding good behaviour and not punishing the bad can work.
Tomorrow, Daughter one's task is to be nice to her sister (includes no snatching) and no kicking anyone.
Reward: A bed time story. Bad behaviour = no story.
