A fun way to encourage our children to help around the house. By deciding what each level includes, we can involve all children to participate at their level and feel proud of their own accomplishments.

- Encourage everyone to participate.
- Have your children make new badges for other family services.

These tools were created when my oldest was in kindergarten. They worked out so well that the teacher asked if I could make more so that different students could benefit from them. Each child used them for a different reason

Suggestions:
- Set simple achievable and measurable goals.
 - Have the child punch or add a sticker every time the goal is achieved.
- These cards are fueled by positive feedback, excitement and encouragement!

 

The idea behind them is to generate constant encouragement by acknowledging small steps.
These are good in the habit formation stage where the child needs constant reminder still.
- The punch cards are used to reinforced the efforts by acknowledging  them and making them look forward towards completion of the card.
- The certificate comes at the end and becomes a marker and reminder of success.
- Print them and bring them to the school or use them at home.

We focus a lot on what kids shouldn't be doing, but what about what they are doing well?
How often do we forget to fill up their emotional buckets with encouragement, praise and beautiful words?

Suggestions:
- Print on cardboard and keep a few extra copies (already cut) so that you can have them ready to give as soon as you see an action worth celebrating.
- Write a personal note in the back so the child can relate the action to the encouragement.
- Let your child have a few copies that they can give when they see someone doing something great!
