One of those happy blended family times
My kids all have a behavior chart. We picked the top 3 behaviors that bother us from each of them and put them on a chart. Each day they can get 3 stars total if they do not exhibit those three behaviors. Some days they may get all 3 stars..some days less..some days no stars. We then have a list of rewards for stars. It takes them about 2 weeks to earn a reward. Since they each earn different amounts of stars at different times they do not all buy rewards at the same time (if it makes sense).
Our rewards are all non-monetary things such as playing a board game with just mom or dad, a day of no chores, pick what we have for dinner, etc. One of the choices is to buy a later bedtime. They can buy 30 extra minutes.
So tonight my son said he wanted to buy a later bedtime with his stars. I asked him if he wanted it for himself only or for all 4 of them. He said all 4 of them because they all wanted to play a card game before bed.
I thought that was really sweet! He could have easily only bought it for himself but he wanted to spend time with all of them.
Just thought I would share something happy!
