I have been trying to get Sammy to take a little more responsibilty for his school work. I bought this board to have his list out for him. It is sort of our comand central for the family. This way he could check what is expected off him all week. It took a little bit of the constant struggle off me. Well this was the first week using the chart and he fell behind a little bit. Today became catch up day, and my table I think paid the price. Maybe next week will be better.
