When I first read the Positive Discipline Tool Card on "Routines" my immediate reaction was, "There is no way this will work with teenagers." And I think that is probably true if you try to apply the tool card exactly as it is written. So I approached it a different way with my daughter. Instead of trying to create a routine chart with her, I invited her to come up with a routine chart on her own. She is very creative and without any input from me, she came up with the following.
The items on her chart are the things that are important to her. When children become teenagers, they are beginning to establish their own priorities. So I let her decide what those priorities would be. It will be fun to see how well this works for her.
I should probably explain the "Dice Chore" entry. We have come up with a method of doing chores in our family that is kind of fun for the kids. Every day they roll the dice and see which number comes up. The number on the dice corresponds to a chore for that day. They also have the opportunity to roll a "6" which is a free day with no chores. We just started this a couple weeks ago, and so far it has been very successful. Except when my son rolls a "2" which corresponds with dishes. He needs a little extra encouragement with that chore because he absolutely despises doing the dishes. :-)
