It is often said that rewarding children for correct, appropriate behaviour is one of the best ways of strengthening desired behaviour. A reward system for children can be an effective discipline tool if used correctly. It gives children the incentive to repeat the behaviour that parents want to inculcate in the children and lessens the chances of behavioural issues in children.
Dr Don H Fontenelle’s book, How to Live with Your Children; A Guide for Parents Using a Positive Approach to Child Behaviour, published way back in 1989 mentions a few key things that parents should know about rewards before starting a reward system for children. Dr Fontenelle is a child/adolescent psychologist who has published over thirteen books, five of which have been translated into multiple foreign languages:
Once the desired behaviour becomes a part of a child’s routine, then slowly you can start weaning them off from the reward system.
For now, we have designed a beautiful children’s reward chart and e-certificates that you can download to tackle common behavioural problems in children.
