Brilliant Parenting Tip - Goals and Motivation - How to get kids to work together for a common goal

Over coffee last week Sarah Heeringa, the Editor of Parenting Magazine shared an utterly brilliant parenting tip.

Their children wanted a farm bike. So she and Vincent made a deal with them. The children were to pay for a proportion of the bike. Let's say $200. They took a picture of the bike, put one up on the refrigerator (as a faint background image is a good idea) and cut an identical one into 50 pieces. Each chore was assigned a $4 value. The children then would work singularly, or two together to earn a picture piece.

This is a great idea to get children to work together or singularly for a goal. Try it!
