When it comes to your child, there’s virtually nothing you won’t do to make them happy. While we most certainly agree with that statement, we also suggest when a child does a good deed or makes a significant accomplishment, it’s important to reward them. In this week’s blog, we share a few ideas on how you can do this without becoming overzealous.
To create a reward system to help children meet individual goals, a teacher came up with the “Sticks” reward system. With this very good idea, you can teach your kids new lessons such as displaying acts of kindness to using manners. The system looks easy enough, and there are only three things necessary to make this system work. Here are the instructions:
- Big Glass Jar
- Tongue Depressors or Popsicle Sticks
- Large Plain Sticker and Marker
Using the pen, write down the reward system on the sticker and place on the front of the glass. Then fill the jar with the sticks. For every good deed, you child earns a stick. After they collect 20-30 of them, the positive behavior can be rewarded with a prize such as an outing or some other significant gift.
Another way to use popsicle sticks to teach your kids lessons is to use colored sticks to limit children with their media devices. Rather than giving gifts, you can give them time to play a video game or watch a movie. In many cases, this will help your son or daughter to become more disciplined with this form of control.
In addition to teaching kids’ self-discipline, you can create your own Wow Factory Dollars by making a sheet of fake dollar bills. Not only is it good to create a reward system it’s fun. Once your child earns enough fake money, turn in those fake dollars for the real thing where they are free to spend it at our facility. Many parents have found this type of lesson teaches kids to save money as well as work toward their goals.
Lastly, for your toddlers, there are many different tools to help children from everything to poddy training or chores. It’s never too soon to help kids develop life learning skills. If you look on Pinterest, you’ll find a multitude of great ideas that are bound to make a difference in any little one’s life.
