Being the mom of six fabulous & crazy kids all home for the summer, I needed some sort of rewards system for them. After the first couple of days of summer break, I was already done with the fighting and not listening. So, I came up with this:
Everytime that I catch my kids being kind, helping, or not talking back when I ask them to do (or not do) something, they get to pick a card. The are a few different cards. I picked rewards that they would be excited about, and that I could live with. I printed the reward cards on cardstock and then had them laminated.
When they choose a card, they can’t see which one they are getting, which makes it like a game. They love it! Some of the cards are 1,2, or 3 points. They can save these cards and use them to get things at the ‘Point Store’. They love being able to ‘buy’ things.
So far it has been working great! Hopefully it will work the rest of the summer so we can all stay happy and sane!!!:)
