Connections Posted March 16, 2012 Share Posted March 16, 2012 (edited) What do you do to instill accountability (preferably without losing your mind)? When assignments are not completed on time, what do you do? Right now we play wii one day/ week as a family. if work is not done or deadlines have not been met, the offender must sit out. The problem I am having (aside from the difficulty of being the bad guy) is that I want my children to work hard and to finish their assignments because it is the right thing to do and to pursue excellence- not to avoid a punishment. I am beginning to think this is a personality issue as one of my DS works diligently while the other avoids work. However, I am not willing to let this go. I am determined to help him learn self-discipline. We are in the middle school years, BTW, and I am working hard to tailor each of their educations to provide the appropriate challenges for their learning abilities.
