--Because of the choleric’s nature, the schedule should be somewhat flexible. But the schedule relays to them the fact that YOU are the parent and, as such, YOU are in control.
--If there is no semblance of a schedule, they will feel (and usually are) totally in control.
--This accomplishes at least two things, not the least of which is that later, when there is a question (and there is always a question with a choleric child) about whether a task has been done, you have the chart to back you up.
--Another thing the chart does is to reinforce to the child that YOU, not THEY, are in control.
Proverbs 11:14—Without wise leadership (a.k.a.choleric), a nation is in trouble; but with good counselors, there is safety.
