I used charts to reward my girls when they were little and to encourage good behavior. With my method, they earned a neon smiley face sticker every day that they did what they were supposed to, and if they did it all week, they got a glittery smiley face. Once they had 4 glittery smiley faces, they could pick out a reward at the bookstore.
Yes, it's really bribery, I know, but is that such a bad thing?
Do you use reward charts for your kids? Why or why not?
