What are behavior charts?Behavior charts track a child’s behavior and reward positive desirable behavior. The reward can either be the sticker on the behavior chart or a treat that the child receives when enough stars are earned. Decide on the required number of stars ahead of time and let the child know. The number depends on the child’s age. Charts with only ten steps usually work best with kids age 3 to 5 while older kids typically need around 20 steps. We offer a variety of free behavior charts that you can download and print.
Why do behavior charts work?Positive reinforcement is the best way to encourage and maintain good behavior. Children love to be praised and encouraged. Sticker Charts ensure that we praise desirable behavior, which we otherwise might not have recognized.
How do you use these charts?
- Show your child our selection of printable charts and let him or her choose one.
- Download and print the chart of your child’s choice.
- Define “good behavior” and discuss it with your child. Make sure that they understand how you would like them to behave and what kind of behavior will be rewarded with a star or sticker. For example, if your child comes into your bed during the night then explain to her that each night she stays in her bed throughout the night, she will get a star.
- When the chart is complete, acknowledge his achievement with a reward.
- Make the process fun and enjoyable!
