Making Adjustments

I just wanted to update those of you keeping up with how we are completing our morning tasks and the competition between buddies. Well, I had to make some adjustments because everyone was so in to competing to get finished first, that they were scarfing down breakfast and running around taking care of themselves and their own buddy, not caring for anyone else. Then it would come down to being neck in neck and then it was like, "so and so didn't do this and so and so didn't do that." It was totally defeating the purpose of working together.
So, I've adjusted the terms. Now, everyone has to get ready and have all their tasks completed before time for school to start just as before. Only now, everyone works together to make sure everything is completed. If everyone is finished and ready by school time, everyone gets to have a treat (dessert) on Friday Night Family Night. If not, no treat that week. It should work like this, if someone gets ready and notices that a younger person is not ready or needs some help they should help them whether it's their buddy or not. If everyone wants the treat, everyone has to help and hold the others accountable (in love). We'll see how this goes and I'll keep you posted on our progress.
In the meantime, if any of you have any suggestions, I'm open to receiving them.
