Garrett is now old enough to understand our family's reward and consequence system and he eagerly insisted to be involved in earning his own "Fun Bucks" that could be exchanged for various incentives. The very first reward he requested once he had earned enough to afford it was to have breakfast served to him in bed. When Ella awoke and saw what was going on, she, too, wanted to be waited on in a like manner. She hopped back in her bed and called for her meal to be brought to her as well. Well, I hope Garrett's participation in the system will help to manage his behavior in an effective manner, because it is quite apparent that no matter what he does, he will always have a little sister following him about, wanting to do everything he does.
