5 Parenting Secrets for Improving Your Child's Behavior

2.USE BEHAVIORAL INCENTIVES

It is better to focus on one behavior at a time, and when your child is not doing what he is asked to do, sometimes a behavior chart is the answer.

The chart can be bought, at the News Agent and is placed on the wall. Explain carefully and clearly to your child what you expect them to do. It may be as simple as being ready for school on time. Every time they do what they are asked, a sticker goes up on the calendar. After 30 days of good behavior, a reward can be given. ( It works better if the reward is prenegotiated, and then the child is working towards this goal).

Some parents say that this is bribery, but it doesn’t always have to be a material reward, it could be something like a family day out. Or going to a movie with Dad and just spending special time together. As long as the reward is special and different from a normal day.
