Behavior Charts and other Resources

What are behavior charts?

Behavior Charts

behavior chart (otherwise known as a reward chart or sticker chart) helps children understand that it is more rewarding to behave well than to misbehave.

Kids initially start behaving well to get a sticker on their chart, please their parents and teachers, be praised and complimented, or maybe even get a reward for completing their behavior chart. Eventually, good behavior comes naturally and kids start reaping the benefits. They start enjoying their relationship with their parents, they love not being yelled at, getting good grades, improving self-esteem, etc. In time, children will actually set limits for themselves and want to behave well!

There are two kinds of behavior charts on this site: charts that focus on a specific behavior or reward chart templates you can use for any purpose.

Reward or behavior chart templates are very flexible and can be customized to your needs. Most of our behavior charts can also be personalized with your child’s name, goals, and photo. All of our charts are free including customized charts.

According to the CDC, a reward program such as a sticker chart can help young kids. It can help get kids to do things they are not already doing or encourage them to keep doing things they are already doing. It works well for behaviors that become a habit like staying in bed after being tucked in, using the potty, or brushing one’s teeth.

 Reward Charts for Kids

How do reward charts work?

Behavior ChartA reward chart is used to promote and encourage good behavior by emphasizing a child’s good behavior instead of focusing on the bad behavior. Studies have shown that praising good behavior is far more effective than reprimanding children for their bad behavior. The problem is that it is much easier to focus on bad behavior since it is difficult to ignore. Sticker charts help remind you to praise good behavior by placing a star or sticker on the chart. This sends a message to the child that he or she is being rewarded for acting in that manner. Your child, in turn, will want to receive more positive feedback so he or she will be motivated to behave in a similar manner. After all, who doesn’t want to be praised? Each time you stick a sticker on the reward chart you are basically taking the time to stop and praise your child. It also makes it clear to the child that he or she is acting in a manner that you appreciate, like, and want to reward.

It is important that the whole process is fun or else it will not be as effective. Try to choose a chart that your child likes from our huge selection of free printable behavior charts. Choose a sticker chart together with your child and give it a try. The only thing that you have to lose is your child’s bad behavior!

  2. my daughter LOVES Hello Kitty. It would be much appreicated if you could add a Hello Kitty Reward chart….

    Thanks,
    Leanne

  3. I finally got my kids to stay in their bed all night with the help of your reward charts πŸ™‚

  4. I take a chart with me when I go to the mall with the kids. I use a whole chart for a visit. Each time we go into a store adn they are well behaved I give them a star and when they get 10 stars they can choose a small gift or candy bar. Shopping used to be a nightmare and now it is actually fun!

  5. Thank you for offering these great reward charts! They will be featured in my upcoming newsletter and I know my readers will find them especially helpful!

  6. it works like magic… my kids change almost right away when i use sticker charts… i looooove them….

  8. Hi. You did some fabulous peppa pig behaviour charts but when i click on them it doesn’t go to pdf like the others…is there something i am doing wrong? sorry for being a pain…

  9. These are saved in a different format. You click on them and save the file or print. It is better to save the file and then open it and print as then you don’t get the margin that you get when you print directly. If you prefer the PDF version then let me know which one/s you want and I will email the PDF version to you.

  10. Great reward charts! Can you tell me how come some charts have 4 boxes on each day and others five?
    Do you reward good behaviour after set times… Morning / lunch time / dinner and bed? Or to reward good behaviour as it occurs?

    Thanks πŸ™‚

  11. I would reward behaviour as it occurs and not at set times so that children can connect their good behaviour with the reward. The number of boxes depends on the child’s age and behaviour. A child with a lot of issues might need to be rewarded more often to keep him/her motivated. You can try different charts and see which work for you. You can also use the free reward chart maker which enables you to add any number of boxes.

  12. Hi, thanks for your quick response!
    My son is 11, and has ADHD. He’s dad and I are keen to try something new and think the reward charts are a great incentive for our son to improve he’s behaviour.
    I will have a look at the chart you suggested. Thanks for creating such a fabulous site! πŸ™‚

  13. Hi, just wanted to say thanks for the free printable reward charts. My three year old is finally able to sleep in her own bed alone. πŸ™‚

  14. This is brilliant love it deffinetly going to give it a try maybe my kids will learn to behave themselves with these fab brilliant thank you so much

  15. I used to have 4 pain in the necks, but since inforcing some discipline and using thses reward charts, my 4 boys have been much better. I let them choose their own, my 7 year old chose spongebob, my 6 year old chose Ben 10, my 4 year old chose spiderman and my 3 year old chose Bob the builder. This along with the time out spot for discipline has definitly been working but I have a question, for my 6 & 7 year olds should I use a time out room because they are older or shall I keep using the time? Thanks.

  24. I added a few charts that you can edit. You will be able to input the tasks, chores or list of behaviors that you are trying to improve.

  25. How do I print the charts? Whenever I click on one, it goes to Pintrest?? Really would like to use these charts for my kiddies!

    Thanks!!
    Kym

  26. Kym, you have to click on one of the corners of the image and not in the middle. If you still cannot open it please let me know.

  27. We’re a group of volunteers and starting a new scheme in our community.
    Your site offered us with valuable information to work on.
    You have done an impressive job and our whole community will be grateful to you.

  28. So glad that I found your website! I saw that if we needed something specific to ask, so I am going to ask :). Any way you can do a reward chart (similar to the BMX one) with a snowboard? Maybe 15 steps? That would be SO wonderful!!! Thank you in advance .
