I've decided to try a reward chart with my 3 year old. She already does the things on the list but we'd like her to do them consistently and or with less fuss.
So far, I have: Brush teeth (morning and night) but I haven't decided if that should be 1 line or two separate lines.
Clean up your playroom.
Eat all of your dinner.
Do something nice (or something, I'm not really set on this one yet but I'm stumped for more ideas).
Now how should the rewards at the end of the week work? A prize for each full weeks completed task, or only a prize if everything on every line is full for the week?
I was thinking of new books and movies as bigger rewards, like a whole month of full charts. Or letting her pick a family activity like going to Chuck E Cheese, or a park or something along those lines.
I have no idea what to do for smaller rewards. I want to stay away from food as a reward and don't need a house f
I saw a great idea in Disney's Family Fun magazine this month. The mom who wrote the article was having a hard time getting her kids to do chores without nagging so finally she had an idea. She bought jars for each kid (ages teens to 3 years old) and little marbles or other small gems, decorated the jars (project for mommy and daughter?), and made a list of chores with a gem value (bushing teeth = 1 gem, trying new foods = 5) when the jar fills up there is a reward (date with mommy or daddy, extra 30 minutes of tv, say up 30 minutes later on Friday. . . ) I hope this sparks your imagination.
