I do not always enjoy going to church. I know it's important and it is what we are suppose to do but sometimes I feel that it is not worth the fight with the kids to keep them quiet. Last week was really bad. The boys were horrible during church.
I was so upset that when we got home I made them sit on their beds. They ate lunch then went right back to sitting down. They did not get to play or watch tv all day (I don't know if it was harder for them or me.) We also started a new thing. We practice sitting quietly for 10 minutes every day. If they play or talk then I start the time over (has happened twice).
I am happy to report that today was much better. They did not sit perfectly still, which is to be expected, but they were for the most part quiet. After getting alot of praise for their good behavior they were able to play games on the computer after lunch and watch some tv. We are still going to be doing our quiet time as it seems to be working. We will see how things go next week.
