I am doing my best to raise my children as God intended me to in this vocation. And I'm often at a loss, especially for the older kids, for a punishment to match the "crime". It's easy to punish the three year old with a time out or quick swat to the butt (if it's serious, like running in the street when told to stop). But what about the older kids? Sadly, I don't always remember that they lost their computer time or dessert. I try to write it down to remind myself, but don't always make it in the heat of the moment.
I have a copy of a nifty chart on the cork board in my bedroom. It's right by the bathroom door so that I see it whenever I walk past. I've had it for years, but when I saw it in full color on the Raising Arrows website, I knew I had to share it here.
The chart is a Biblical reference chart for punishment. I'm putting a small image of the front of the chart here for your viewing pleasure, but you can get the whole chart, in its complete form, at the Raising Arrows post. I know that Amy won't mind seeing you visit!
