Kid Trouble?

Kids having trouble listening? Arguing? Fighting? Here's a solution.

I've been doing this for a little while yet, but there is outstanding changes in behavior when i say " You want a strike?" They stop the bad behavior right away.

You make each kid a chart.
It has their name at the top, and in the corner there is a box that says " Strikes" With 6 lines under it. (You can obviously change the amount.)

This is how it works:

It's basically a competition.
Whoever gets the least amount of strikes gets a prize, but in case there is a tie, you add stickers or just marker dots for good behavior, and whoever has the most good behavior marks, wins a special prize. ( Candy, a toy, whatever)

So whenever they misbehave, You ask them if they want a strike, which means less chance of a prize. (For the littlest one, he didn't exactly get the concept, so i just said "If you want a prize, then stop hitting." and stuff.

It's worked so far for the 6 year old, 4 year old, and 2 year old, so its nice!!!

Comment the results if you use please!!!!

  1. Very good advice. Does it work on bratty tween age girls as well? Just kidding. I couldn't ask for a better tween ager. ^o^
