I've been having problems with Peter (11) leaving his shoes in the middle of the floor. Sooooooo, his shoes kept disappearing. I told him that his shoes were going into a time out box for two weeks, if he wanted them before then he had to pay the $1 fine. (He has no money right now). After losing 2 pairs of shoes he was down to 2 pairs left - one that was to big (ones he yet to grow into) and one that was to small (ones he had out grown). He has now been broken of the habit of leaving shoes in the middle of the floor - we hope. Sooooo, today he leaves his coat in the middle of the floor. I tell him that his coat can go to the time out box as well. To which he responds, "I only have one coat." So I tell him that he better not leave it on the floor otherwise he'll be awfully cold for the next two weeks. He's had his warning, next time it's gone. Mean mommy!
