Reward System


Today for FHE we decided to start our token system. We've done it in the past, but LittleA wasn't old enough to grasp the whole concept. Now I think she's ready. I thought it would be nice to share what we do and pass it on. I bought cheap little glass rocks (buttons, marbles, or anything small would work) and have a tupperware container for each child with a slit cut out at the top. The kids earn tokens (glass rocks) for things they do throughout the day and then they get to "spend" those tokens on things of their choice. I made up a small chart (above) so the girls had something easy to go off of.
Tonight the girls were in bed in record time! I sure hope this keeps up! :) Email me if you want my actual sheet that you can input your own family needs/wants. As you can see, my girls love anything to do with sweets & restaurants. Hmm, I wonder where they get that from?!?

I've tried to manage our token system until I just got so tired of it. I like how you have everything on a chart so they know how much to earn for certain things, that will help us out a lot! thanks!

I don't know what a red box is, but it sounds like fun and I want one. I promise I will behave.

I like it. Will you please send it to me? Thank you SO much for sharing! I also love that your girls consider going to the library a reward. That's really cool. Good job, Charise!
