Behavior Charts

What are behavior charts?

Behavior charts track a child’s behavior and reward positive desirable behavior. The reward can either be the star which is pasted on the behavior chart or a treat which 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 10 steps usually work best with kids age 3 to 5 while older kids usually need around 20 steps. We offer a variety of free behavior charts which 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?

  1. Show your child our selection of printable charts and let him or her choose one.
  2. Download and print the chart of your child’s choice.
  3. 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.
  4. When the chart is complete, acknowledge his achievement with a reward.
  5. Make the process fun and enjoyable!

How do you customize the editable behavior charts?

If you have selected an editable behavior chart then you can edit the text and add your own image.

  1. Click on the editable behavior chart to open the chart maker.
  2. Edit the text and add your own text if you want.
  3. Add a photo.
  4. Download to your PC and print.

For what age can these charts be used to promote good behavior?

Behavior charts can be very efficient from age 3 until about age 7 or 8. The age of the child will determine the number of stars or steps on the chart. For younger kids up to age 5, we recommend one of the charts with 10 steps. Kids, ages 5 – 8, can cope with 20 steps.

How to develop and use a reward program

There are four steps:

Step 1: Decide what specific behaviors you want to reward

Pick a few specific behaviors that your child will clearly understand. For example, don’t write “behave well” but rather “no hitting”. Only choose behaviors that your child is capable of and are suitable for his age.

Step 2: Decide on the reward

The reward should be something your child wants to earn and will enjoy. It doesn’t have to cost money. Getting the stickers on the chart can be the reward. If that is not going to work for your child then decide on a reward when he earns a certain number of stickers such as going out for an ice cream.

Step 3: Create a behavior chart

Select a behavior chart from this site. You can add pictures to any chart. Click on “add photo” and add a photo if your child cannot read yet. For example, instead of writing “tidy your room” add a photo of your child’s room when it is tidy.

Step 4: Explain the reward program to your child

Your child needs to understand exactly what he has to do to get a sticker on his behavior chart.

Step 5: Use the reward program

Remember to give him a sticker on his chart immediately after the behavior to make sure that he knows exactly what he did to earn the reward.

Step 6: Slowly change the selected behavior or phase out the reward program

Reward your child often when you start using the behavior chart. Over time, you will notice a change in your child’s behavior. Once this new behavior has become habit you can either stop using the behavior chart or start a new chart with different behaviors.

Should you take off stickers for bad behavior?

No. Never take away rewards your child has earned. Rewards that your child has earned are his and should not be removed for misbehaviors.
