Rewards and Disaplain??

My 5 year old daughter has had a total change of charactor and has decided to go againt everything i ask and do everything she knows not. Im trying to come up with some ideas to reward her for good behavior and disaplain her for bad. I've thought about doing a ribbon system which would reqire her to be good to recieve on and when she's bad she loses one and once she reaches a set amount she is rewarded with something? What are some good yet not pricey ideas? And does anyone have any other ideas besides ribbons that they may have tryed and was a success?

  • Well, taking away after she got it isn't a good idea because she did earn it. The ribbon is a great idea, but, just make it harder if you have to get it.Like 3-4 stickers for one ribbon. If she is being that defiant make it harder and see what happens.If she doesn't do the right thing, no sticker and it takes longer to get what she wants. Include losing privileges in the discipine.Make a chart and explain it to her in a way that she understands.
