Goals are good, right?
So, here are three that I've come up with for the kids in this house:
1) Refrain from interrupting others (--especially the interruptions that involve increased vocal volume in order to facilitate your more urgent communication).
2) Eat a meal together at which everyone practices appropriate table manners without 3852 reminders from parents.
3) Make it through a day (or, at least, a few hours) without utilizing the pull-laboriously-on-some-part-of-Mom's-body-in-order-to-get-her-attention technique.
This family is open to any helpful tips, creative ideas, or sympathetic gestures relating to the above-mentioned goals. Reaching these goals would be REALLY good.
