Warm and fuzzy home
We decided to welcome these little warm fuzzies into our home. Why you ask? What is the point? Well, each of these little pompoms represents a and act or behavior that showed love, respect, or kindness. The point is I'm trying to encourage good character. It works like this: When any one of my kids shows a good attitude, or behavior that I want to recognize (if it is something they always do, I may not want to point it out, but if it is something I know they struggle with, I will want to show praise) I give them a fuzzy to put in the jar. We are moving in a year so we are trying to see how many jars we can fill before then. What do they get when they fill a jar? Well, they get the pride and satisfaction of a job well done. Seriously, I want them to develop good character for themselves, not for a treat. They still like receiving and depositing these soft babies, and it is a fun colorful way for me to call attention to positive behaviors. My kiddos (5, 7, 9, and 11 years old) don't seem to really need much more than that.
