Children love to be rewarded, so lets
Reward Them With Minutes
You can design what they get rewarded for and how they get to spend the reward minutes on.
There are the 3 examples here above note, coin, tokens and there are 3 blank replicas so you can design there individual currency, or you may decide minutes is not the way for your family, so you can chose something totally different..
So print them out, you could also laminate them to keep them looking nice, and then decide on your 3 categories of expenditure.
Coins- Instant spot rewards, something you spot them doing unasked.
Dollars- Chores or Homework done on time without asking
Tokens- Helpful things, like tidying up for Mum, or Helping family members.
Simple things like
- They washed their hands, with out being asked
- They sat up at the table and got ready for dinner without getting asked.
- Homework out of bag and on the table, straight after school
- Cleaning teeth before bed
- Making their bed
- Tiding the room
Decide on a day to cash in whether you allow it to be anytime, or just in the weekends its up to you, your the parent.
You know the things that are special for your children so design spending to be something that is special to them.
Some suggestions are
Notes could be Time to do something special just with you and Mum or Dad
Coins could be and extra 5 minutess of television after an allotted bed time
Tokens could be an extra bedtime story, or they could read for 5 minutes more after lights out
This is not money it is MINUTES!!, so you are not teaching them to many bad habits
