Tips for keeping latch-key kids occupied from Gregg Murset

1. Set expectations with goals, rewards and penalties. No matter the age of your children or what you are trying to do with them, it's important to set real goals, rewards for a job well done, and penalties if something goes wrong. By having clear goals, rewards and penalties, children of all ages can begin making limited decisions and weighing the consequences of bad decisions.

2. Determine the "Trust Factor." On a scale of 1-5, how much do you trust your child to be home unattended? If the number is 1, you will need to keep your child busy, and possibly, set some high penalties if something goes wrong. If the number is 5, give your child enough to remain productive and grow with your trust.

3. Communication is key. Make sure your children understand that there is no such thing as over communication throughout this process and that you actually demand regular updates. Depending on the age of the child and the "trust factor" by the parent, regular communication can be a few times or every hour. Toward the end of the evening, the entire family can gather to review the progress of the assigned projects and discuss what comes tomorrow.

4. Fill time and rotate projects. Set a schedule for your children so that each day is different and the projects fit the age. Make sure that there is enough for the child to do throughout the time he/she is left unattended at home. Make sure a short break is built into the projects so the children have time to unwind from a tough day at school. Again, depending on the age and "trust factor", the amount of time that needs to be filled can vary.

5.  Follow through. No matter whether your children do a great job or poor one, you must follow through with the rewards and penalties. Kids are smart enough to know whether a parent will stand by their word or not and whether there is any bite behind that bark. This is about teaching your children work ethic, responsibility and accountability, so praise and reward them for a job well done and remain strongly committed to the penalty you set for failing to meet the expectations.
