What reward system do you use?

What do you give for prizes or incentives? I was thinking of a green/yellow/red light system but if they go on red can they come off of it if they start behaving? What age do you cut off the rewards? They are preschool age now.

  • I use time outs when they step out of line. We call them "think about it" and they have to tell me why there are sitting there and what a better choice would have been. As for "rewards" I really don't like that term. I don't get rewarded for obeying the laws etc, it is just expected! Positive verbal reinforcement is what I use to help my kids continue to make positive choices for themselves.
