1. Make your kids go to bed at a reasonable time
Is there really anyone who hasn’t heard how important a good night’s rest is to a child’s success? Be the parent and put your kiddo to bed. No kid ever wants to go night night. They may put up a fight at first, but with consistency, they'll learn you mean business. Now you get to enjoy that couple time you've been waiting on all day...or peace and quite finishing the finally of Army Wives. (can't believe it's over)
2. No you can't have Dessert Everyday!
Sweets should be saved for special occasions. That’s what makes them a "treat.” If you give in to your child’s demands for goodies all the time, they won’t appreciate the gesture when someone offers a sweet gift or reward. Long ago there used to be candy shops in every town, and it was such a treat to get to pick out your favorite sweet. Plus, I'm not sure how many cavity fillings your Dental plan gives. $$$ out of pocket
3. "You have an allowance Pay for your own stuff"
If you want something, you have to pay for it. That’s the way adult life works. To get your kids out of your basement in the future, you need to teach your children now that the gadgets, movies, video games, sports teams and camps they enjoy have a price. If they have to pay all or part of that price, they’ll appreciate it more, aren't we trying to teach our kids not to take things for granted. You may also avoid paying for something your child only wants until he has it. If they're not willing to split the cost with you, they probably didn't want it that badly.
4. Don’t pull strings
Some kids get a rude awakening when they get a job and realize that the rules actually do apply to them. "You mean I have to clean this?" They have to come on time and do what the boss wants. And, (gasp!) part of the job they don’t even like. If you don’t like your child’s teacher, science partner, position on the soccer field or placement of the bus stop, avoid the temptation to make a stink or pull strings until he gets his preference. You are robbing your child of the chance to make the best of a difficult situation. Dealing with less than ideal circumstance is something she will have to do most of her adult life. If children never learn to handle it, don't set your child up for failure.
5. "Tough Task?, solve it yourself!"
Don’t automatically step-in and take over when things get hard. Nothing gives your kids a bigger self-confidence boost than sticking to it and accomplishing something difficult for them. "I think I can" beats " I think I can't" everyday!
6. Give them a watch and an alarm clock
Your child will be better off if they learn the responsibility of managing their own time. You’re not always going to be there to remind them to turn off the TV and get ready to go.
7. Don’t always buy the latest and greatest
Teach your children gratitude for, and satisfaction with, the things they have. Always worrying about the next big thing and who already has it will lead to a lifetime of debt and unhappiness. (Parents don't get caught up in this hype either) It's hard but you'll still be able to get by without the nicest things in life.
8. Let them feel loss
If your teen breaks their IPHONE, don’t replace it. He’ll learn a valuable lesson about taking care of his stuff. If your child forgets to turn in homework, let him take the lower grade or make him work out extra credit with his teacher himself. You are teaching responsibility — who doesn’t want responsible kids? They can help remind you of all the things you forget to do.
9. Control media
If all the other parents let their child jump off a bridge, would you? Don’t let your kids watch a show, play a video game that is inappropriate for children, or USE SNAPCHAT just because all their friends have done it. If you stand up for decent parenting, others may follow. Create some positive peer pressure.
10. Make them apologize
If your child does something wrong, make her fess up and face the consequences. Don’t brush rudeness, bullying, or dishonesty under the rug. If you mess up, set the example and eat your humble pie.
11. Make them work — for free (child labor rules don't apply with your own kids)
Whether it’s helping Mi-maw or PaPaw in the garden or volunteering to tutor younger kids, or ready at to the elementary children, make service a part of your child’s life. It teaches them to look outside themselves and realize that other people have needs and problems, too — sometimes greater than their own.
With all the time you spend being mean, don’t forget to praise and reward your children for their AWESOME behavior. And always, make sure they know you love them. With a little luck, your kids can turn the tide and make their generation one known for its hope and promise.

We are here to help if your looking to book a moonbounce with affordable pricing in the Loudoun County Territory. Love hearing from you soon
You know what's great about these indoor bounce places? It's indoors! And they will exhaust your kids until they can't walk. It's best to go only to their open bounce times during the week. Why? because that's when its most affordable. I guess it's affordable, the price of a movie tickets you get to jump around for 1hr or so.
Birthday Parties are a no go for these facilities
The negatives are PRICE! average of $400 a party for only 1hr of bounce and 45 mins of presents and cake. At the end what did you just pay for? Just look up the reviews of past clients for indoor bounce parties. Especially the one that have only one big bounce play room. You have other people parties rolling into yours. For the price you pay, your supposed to have an exclusive private party, but instead it's bombarded by other party goers. You might as well have gone to Chuck E Cheese for a third of the price.
These are all indoor bounce house facility in the Prince William County area, but did you know you only get to play for 1hr .....think about, that the amount of time you watch Dancing With the Stars, The Walking Dead, or American Idol, 1 hr that's all the time you get for a $400 birthday party.
$400 could get you 3 moonbounce with us for the whole day! I honestly think your child would truly enjoy a private party with their friends with a couple of bouncy castle all to themselves.....
besides after the 2 hour party, what do you do with the rest of your day, it's your little kids birthday, do you just tell them that you just had their party, birthday's over? I think not, he/she is gonna want to celebrate all day.
Enjoy bouncing with us for a third (1/3) of the price.
If you have not bounce, you need to bounce with us :) We would love to hear from you, we have 1000's of great reviews and a HUGE selection of bounce houses to choose from. We service over 1900 parties a year, and have a 80% returning customer rate. Can't we to speak to you, and be apart of your very special day.
