Do you ever have trouble making sure each sibling gets a fair share of first turns and special attention? Use this idea from Family Fun Magazine; name a Kid of the Day (KOD).
Each day, on a rotating basis, one child is awarded this prestigious title and all the privileges that go with it. They decide what TV show to watch and are the first to play with a coveted toy. If the group cannot agree on which game to play, let the Kid of the Day come to the rescue.
The Kid of the Day is designed to maintain peace but can also be used to make each child feel special. The privilege of serving as the dinner helper or picking out which vegetables to eat is an added plus. As kids grow older they can be the first one to share about their day at the dinner table or run an errand with Mom or Dad.
KOD is a fun way to keep sanity for parents and make kids feel unique!
