We’re starting school in a week and I would love to have a gameplan in place that we all know and can keep up with. We fought nearly every morning last year and I 100% do not want to do that again. For those of you that use checklists and clocks for your kids do you put them in every room? How does your child remember to check the list and complete the items on it? Do they get rewards for doing well and if so what type of reward system do you use?
In the morning my son will have an hour in which he will need to get his clothes on, brush his teeth, and pick what he wants for breakfast from a list of items.
At night I’m thinking when we get home he will do his homework with hubby while our other son and I cook dinner. We eat as a family and then it’s time to get ready for bed. If he sticks to this schedule without being too disruptive I want to reward him for that also. I’m thinking that each time he does the things he’s supposed to he is rewarded with a ticket. Based on how many tickets he has we will have a sliding scale of rewards. Am I making this too complicated? I am open to any suggestions. What do you do that works for your family?
