what is my child doing?"
husband and I purchased our POINTS Method kit earlier
this month. Last evening we started our seven year old
son using the system. We began by carefully following
the quickstart instructions and he seemed to take to it
was a little uncertain as to whether or not we were doing
it right and I did not really know what to expect once
he had start using it. I did understand that we would
need to complete the checklist so that he would have an
idea of what areas we wanted to focus on regarding his
behavior and development. He responded fairly well and
I felt like, "Okay this might just work".
we prepared to rest for the evening, I told him that he
would need to get ready for bed and to be sure to say
his prayers before falling to sleep. Otherwise he would
not be able to collect the POINTS. He wanted to hang out
in my room and talk with me. I told him that it would
be a good idea to go ahead and say his prayers and get
in his bed, because I knew that he was tired and he really
needed to get some rest. Of course, he felt that he was
not tired and shortly thereafter he did in fact drift
right off to sleep.
was watching the television when I noticed that he had
fallen to sleep. I was a little frustrated because I should
have made him go ahead and do as I had advised.. I figured,
oh well it is just the first night and we will have plenty
of time to work on things like this. About 30 minutes
later he woke up and quickly jumped out of my bed. I was
looking at him and thinking, Lord what is my child doing?
To my surprise he got down on his knees and started praying.
Once he finished he jumped in my bed and went right back
has fallen asleep talking to me many times before without
saying his prayers, what was amazing to me was the fact
that he had never gotten up to say his prayers after falling
asleep. (smile) I was completely sold on the POINTS Method
at that moment. I know that it is a really great motivational
tool and it is obvious to me that even though he was groggy,
it had been impressed upon his mind strongly enough that
he was motivated to complete this important task.
morning, I left to go to work and when I called home to
speak to my husband to see just how well he was doing,
I was informed that he had earned a whole lot of POINTS.
I was so very pleased and just wanted to share this email
message with you all.
really works! Thanks for sharing this system with us!
