Praising a child helps to encourage and motivate them. Plus using a reward chart proves as a strong incentive to recognise and encourage positive behaviours and remember to do tasks required of them, complete homework etc. It really is a powerful parenting tool. Getting the kids to help around the house teaches them responsibility, giving them self-confidence and is of course so very helpful for you! It may surprise you what the children are actually capable of.
Choose a design and print. Laminate the chart if you can (or place in a plastic sleeve) so you can reuse each week. Keep the chart in the kid’s bedroom, or in an area that you won’t forget about them. Place a sticker on the chart as soon as good behaviour is noticed or tasks are completed. You will see that the child will start behaving better so they can receive a sticker and the praise from their parents. Repeated week after week, these new habits should come naturally and boost their self-esteem.
