Oh my! It is that time of year. The kids will be home more due to school breaks. They will be getting new toys that they will need to share. They will need to be together more than is usual. In my house, that means arguments and differences of opinions throughout the days.
Thank goodness for a new product, the Pocket Referee! This is a very simple concept and one that any child can catch on to. The Pocket Referee is a coin that can be used to settle disputes with your children in a way that is both easier on the kids and parents, but also is fair. Here is how it works…
1. Pick which child will be the holder of the coin. You can do this any number of ways but we pick a number or something out of a hat.
2. When a conflict arises, the coin holder can decide to have their way, but then they must pass the coin to the other child or children. Or,…
3. The coin holder can let the other child have their way and keep the coin for a later time.
What I love about the Pocket Referee is that it teaches kids how to handle problems but also helps them determine what things are most important to them. You can choose from two designs, either the brass or gold. Each Pocket Referee comes with a coin, a carrying pouch, an instruction sheet, and a carrying clip.
This is a great thing to have on hand at a grandparent’s house, in your car, and in your home. Kids will learn an important lesson in a way that is both interesting and fun!
You can purchase the Pocket Referee from Amazon.com or other locations. The retail price is $12.95 for the brass and $15.95 for the gold coin.
