Give your children a special gift. On the first day of each month have your children all huddle around the family calendar. One by one the children close their eyes and select a day to be 'King' or 'Queen' for the day, by randomly pointing to the calendar squares. On that day they choose what we will have for dinner and get special attention like an extra story of their choice. If it's not a school day, they can invite a friend to spend the night or rent a movie. It's a big thrill to the kids, and little effort for you. A great way to be sure each of your children get that little extra attention we know they all deserve!
