Pop culture is out of control.....

at our house. After countless references and reenactments of Disney shows, we have changed the way we view TV, play video games and computer time. We have established a check system. For every chore done to the kids' best ability and with a joyful heart they receive 1-2 checks depending on the size of the job. After they receive 10 checks they earn 20 minutes of free time on the TV (shows I have prerecorded), game system or computer. So far it is working very well but with everything once the new wears off we will see how it works.
Not only is this system to help limit screen time, as you can see from the pictures, we are also making a HUGE effort to reward good behavior. We have the chart on display in the hallway so everyone can see there hard earned checks.

What are the screen time rules at your house?
