  • One idea...........My niece has a kindness chart in her home. The kids have to do the things on the chart and they get points or stickers for doing them. After a week or so they get a day out to the park, go out for ice cream, have a special meal, go to a museum, etc. It has worked wonders for them.

  • Give them things to do cooperatively, chores, games, etc. Reward them for behaving and working together.
