I am so excited about
my daughters new frame of mind. I had to write and share
with you what my daughter is doing this summer.
Amber is the kind
of child that has no sense of value. She takes everything
for granted and she obviously thinks that her dad and
I are rich and that money grows on trees.
We put her on the
points method and started noticing changes right away.
She told us that she wanted to be a cheerleader this year
and that it was going to cost $240.00 for her uniforms
and registration. We told her we would have to think about
it because she had just gotten a bunch of clothes and
a new Dell notebook computer.
She made a very convincing
argument. She had actually showed us that she had saved
4000 points and put together a summer budget to earn the
total number of points needed to pay for her own uniform
and registration. We were so proud of her and pleased
with this changes in her character that we agreed to pay
half of the cost and she would have to pay the rest.
am so very very proud of our daughter. Her focus and maturity
has reach an all new level. Their will be two extra cheerleader
this fall because one of them is me. I am cheerleading
for Parentpoints and what you all have done for my husband
and I. Thanks for sharing your ideas with us.
