Are You Even Paying Attention??...

I swear I feel like a broken record sometimes..."Taylor please put your three pair of shoes away where they go." Twenty minutes later..."Taylor your shoes are still out here what did I ask you to do with them?" That is pretty much how my lift seems these days. She is 8 and for the most part is an awesome kid but I swear if she could just pay attention for longer than 5 seconds I wouldn't have to repeat myself 100 times a day.
So...this is where you all come in. What tips and tricks do you ladies have so you don't have to tell your kiddos a million times a day to do something? I am running out of ideas and I know this is one the best places to get new ideas from! There are even times where I will tell her something and she says ok and then five minutes later she hasn't done it and I ask her what I just said and I get the deer in the headlights look from her. 

Please help!!

  1. My daughter is the same way. And they really aren't disobeying on purpose. Just distracted. For my daughter, writing things down works wonders. Instead of telling her throughout the day a bunch of single things to do, (that she won't do because she'll get distracted), I'll give her a list of things she needs to take care of within a time limit. Say, before dinner.

    1. I never even thought of that but that is perfect! I definitely thinks she feels overwhelmed when I tell her a few things to do but a list will help her remember! Thanks!!
