Setting Up a Reward System for the Kids Made Our Lives Easier

...I talked to my kids teacher about  reward systems and positive reinforcement. In my kids classroom they have what’s called a “bean jar.” The kids get a dried bean to put in their jar when they do something awesome like cleaning their toys, listening well etc. They have set guidelines for what will get a bean and what won’t. When they fill the jar up, the class is rewarded with a popcorn party. So, we started the same system at home. We got dried black beans, a jar with each of their names on them and have them right next to the TV in the livingroom so the kids can see them at all times. We set out what will get a bean and what won’t, and when the kids so something above and beyond than they will get a bean as well. more
