{Parenting} Never Be Late to School Again

We — me and the kids — struggle to get to school on time. We are the family of late slips. Well, we were … but not anymore. 

A few weeks ago we stated a new system and we aren’t chronically late anymore 

So what are we doing? I started charging a late tax. I have an alarm set on my phone for 7:35 a.m. Whoever isn’t in the car when the alarm goes off owes a dollar.  My kids are totally motivated by money and at $1 a pop, being late each day can seriously cut into their weekly allowance. But guess what? Since we’ve started neither one of them has been late! How’s that for awesome and easy? There´s also only way that I thought of, it is a bit costly but it´s a really fast transportation method. It´s called an unu and it´s an electric scooter that´s actually very helpful.

The tax isn’t just for the kids. I get charged too if I’m running late. And I did make make them late one day, so I had to pay them a $1. That’s only happened once and I got my act together. 

I wish I would have thought of this sooner.
