Flylady? - Page 2

post #21 of 27
And here I thought it had something to do with shoes giving you better posture or something.

There are several links in the "Table of Contents" (on the left of the homepage) about FLYing w/ Children.


And there is also a section regarding "Payroll SHEs" in there too.

I'm a FLYBaby and am loving it. There are days when I don't feel like doing it, but when I just get off my butt and DO IT, my house looks better and I feel better.

I tried "adapting" it to my liking, but I found that it didn't work. If I just do what she says it does work!

You have the attitude down already

SaraMama thanks! I'll check them out later and see if any are what I was thinking of.

Aw bummer, not what I want. I checked them and they are all member tips. Which might be useful, I don't know, but it's Flylady essays I wanted. I think she doesn't keep them on the site maybe? But I know she's gone into detail many times on not yelling/nagging/threatening our kids into doing things. About making housework a natural part of life and even something that can be FUN - not drudgery. About not holding kids to perfect standards and nitpicking their efforts. Stuff like that.

See, I write all that above and then this morning get an email from Kelly (one of the Flylady helpers) about throwing her dd's backpack out the door when she didn't remember to put it away. Sigh. That's not the message I'm getting from MARLA (the Flylady) at all. Sometimes I wonder if these women are on the same page,

Good point - my dd actually DOES care and so does dh. When things are clean, everyone is happier. BUT it seems like I'm the one who cares enough to do something about it. I used to really resent that, but now I'm just accepting that since it's important to ME I'm just going to do it.

Lately, I am working on enlisting their help more. Now that things are a little more organized, it's easier to SAY what will help, rather than just throwing up my hands in frustration! DD is interested in helping if she knows what to do and it's not just mom being grumpy and resentful. I would still be interested if you do find essays about kids helping though. I liked the member tips too - it's pretty long though!
