In keeping with the theory of hit-em-where-it-hurts, I am 'fining' my DS's. This is extremely embarrassing to admit but they are SLOBS. I truly dont know where they get it, because I am not. Must be paternally hereditary...lol...its always great to blame it on the ex-dh. Anyways...their rooms are pig-pen disgusting! I am forever telling them NO FOOD in your rooms because they dont bring back the dirty dishes. So occasionally I will go to get a spoon or a plate or a cup and there are NONE. So, yesterday I told them to bring me up all of the dirty dishes. They brought up a few token dishes and told me there werent any more. Rather than argue, I waited til they were both gone and I sent DD on a mission.... .25 for every dish she could find in their rooms. She earned 11.25!!! Which means that she found 45 dishes...spoons, cups, plates, tupperware etc etc. They have been texted and told that they owe this fine when they return home! I am hoping that fining them will work. I have tried everything else. But now that they are working, they have money and maybe this will hit them. Anyone else use any creative punishments that have worked?
