What are behavior charts?
Kids initially start behaving well in order 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 starts coming 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. Eventually, 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 that can be used 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 the customized charts.
According to the CDC, a reward program such as a sticker chart can be helpful with 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?
A reward chart is used to promote and encourage good behavior by placing emphasis on 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.
