Children certainly know which buttons to press to annoy us. But, shouting and losing control (however tempting) is not the way to deal with a child who is misbehaving. There is one technique that can bring excellent results: the humble sticker chart!
The sticker chart is a great way to give positive attention to a child when they have been especially good. Simply add a new sticker to a chart each time you see good behaviour and remove one if you see bad behaviour. Display the chart somewhere your child will see it: on the fridge or a wardrobe door.
Firstly, explain to your child what the chart is about. Children love stickers: they are colourful, easy for them to use, and when they are awarded a sticker they always feel special. Perhaps allow your child to choose which stickers they can use for their chart. Write their name clearly on the chart or add a photo. Make sure they understand how it will work!
Sticker charts work for all sorts of occasions: potty training, eating well, doing school homework or just being good! In the run up to Christmas sticker charts are especially popular! Will Father Christmas see a chart full of good stickers and leave lots of presents?
