reverence incentive

We have had a bunch of wiggle worm whisperers at Sacrament meeting lately and Big B and I were getting frustrated. Then I remembered my wise friend Robin, and a great incentive program she used with her kids.
A couple weeks ago at FHE we talked about reverence and then I introduced the idea. Each Sunday, right after church we would go home and have ice cream and toppings. If during the meeting we hold up one finger to settle a child down they will not get toppings. Two fingers means no ice cream.
We have been doing it for 2 weeks and it's gone great! Two weeks of reverent children and parents who can listen to the talks!

Love little Wild Thing Tate!

I may need to borrow that idea- most of the time my kids do quite well- but then, they are older. Other times it is like King/Queen Contention follows us into the chaple- and hubby sits on the stand, so it is just me.

Very good idea--maybe I'll have to try that with Allan ; ) In reality, that would sure work for me.
