  • Across the top of a poster board write down 7-10 things that you want your son to do.
    Pick up toys
    Make bed
    Wake up happy
    [Have a Bonus one for if he does something special that is not on your list]
    Then draw lines down. When he does one of those things he gets a sticker in that collumn. When he gets X stickers he gets a reward. Keep the rewards reasonable and if you include food make sure you include non-food.
    This means you will need to keep a few things on hand for prizes... water ballons, bubbles, little treats
    When he does one of thing "rew

  • Niki_sd said exactly how I do them but you can buy them at Dollar Tree for a dollar. It is also a great source for reward stuff.

  • Go check out Chucky look at promotions and then rewards and they will have a link to a printable chart you can go to the libruary and print it up for say 10 cents a page. then you take it to Chucky cheese and they will give you 10 tokens.
    they have ones for older kids too. like home work and teeth brushing, chores, manners ect I am using the potty training one.

  • With our younger kids, we have pictures of the things they are supposed to do throughout the day. The chart is actually a table that is for the entire week. We have things such as no whining, fighting, pick up toys, put dishes (we use plastic) on the table, brush teeth, help put clothes away, etc. What ever you think your child can handle. If they complete the task, then they get to put a sticker up on that square. If the table is filled at the end of the day, then they get to have extra tv time, or choose desert, etc. If it is filled at the end of the week, then they get a small, cheap toy. If all the charts are filled at the end of the month, they will have an extra special treat. We have taken them to the movies, or taken them out to eat, etc. It doesn't have to be expensive, but it helps them see that they are expected to do certain tasks to help around the house.
