New in the Parent Toolbox: Jason Avant of DadCentric passes along the color-coded behavior chart that can be read across a crowded room. The post he wrote to go along with it brings up the issue of parental consistency — that if we decide to implement something like this, we have to commit to sticking with it ourselves! Something to consider as you think of motivational strategies for your kids.
Does anyone else set up a sticker chart/point system thingie only to forget about regularly using it? Perhaps we need to earn gold stars for behavior, too.
