I’m having to jump in or either my kids will come up to me to dob one of them in even if the problem is silly. It’s from morning and after school I’m having to deal with. I have said to them to deal with the problem and solve it but it doesn’t seem to work. As I know one of them like to get and see each other get into trouble. Most of the time I say if it’s dobbing I don’t want to hear it. I can tell if they are dobbing cos of body language so I say it before they say what the problem is….. is there a better way of dealing the problem as I’m over it. They are aged 7 and 9, a girl and boy. My 7yr old girl is the dominate one but also the smartest/brightest too. I have tried money taking off like 10 cents, toys taken off, 30 mins off 3hrs technology time (1 hr each day fri sat and sun), helping mum around the house to earn pocket money but then 50cents gets taken off for troubles….I’m lost here really….any help?
