My kid has been driving me crazy lately! She argues with everything that I say, does not do what I ask her to do, and does not listen to anything that I tell her. I have my fingers crossed that she is just going through a stage! Do you have one of these???
Well, a friend of mine shared a great behavior idea that he uses with his classes, to try with my daughter,. All you need is a kitchen timer that makes a loud beeping sound when you are adding seconds to it, and clear rules. Whenever my child (or his class) breaks a rule, they get "beeped". The idea is for them to earn less beeps than their target goal for the week (or if they are really having behavior issues- the day!) My daughter's goal this week is to earn less than 50 beeps. If she can do that, she will get a reward on Friday- a fun Friday.
Her rules are:
No arguing- 2 beeps
Bed and floor beside it clear of toys- 2 beeps
No socks on floor in living room- 1 beep each sock
Not following directions- 1 beep
Doing a random act of kindness- I take a beep off
Have you found a great behavior system that works for your child?
