Radical Reward Charts!

Radical Reward Charts:
 Carrot or Stick
I loved reward charts! I started using them a few years back when our Jack first started to potty train, and they worked a treat. Since then I've tried to keep the reward charts going to to be honest the kids got a little bored of them and they started to lose their effectiveness until we'd all but given up on them... Starting not to sound like "love" after all?

Well it seems that all I needed was a change. A bit of glamour....

No more tatty bits of paper with stickers slapped on haphazardly (because that's what they had degenerated to). How about lovely, long, glossy, INTERESTING reward charts? How about a different design for each kid? How about sticking a picture of the kid on the chart to he can see himself climb to the top?

Oh Yeah! I'm in love again!


Check these out: Radical Reward Charts


Ours came in the post this week. I'd sat down with my iPad with Jack & Tom and let them pick out their own chart. Jack - typically - went  for the Gruesome Graveyard, ("it has a skeleton!!!!") and Tom chose the 'Orrible Ocean ("because it has pink and fishes on it").

What I didn't tell them was that I had also sent in a picture of each of them to be turned into the markers (don't worry, they're safe to send your kids pics in to, and if you don't fancy that they can send you a different marker). They were so excited to get them in the post and almost exploded when they saw their pictures too.

And did I mention that they are MASSIVE! So much better than my A4 sheets of paper. These are like glossy posters. The kids are taking great care in planning which wall they are going to be attached to so they can show them off to every visitor we have!

We're going to start using them at the start of the holidays (Wednesday) so they can earn themselves some extra treats or pocket money to enjoy while they are off school & nursery. And I'm promising to stick to the rules (my bad in the past) so they're keeping tabs on me too!

I'll post again later on about how well they are working.

Disclaimer: I have been asked to write a review by Radical Reward Charts. They have given me two sample charts for free so that we may try them out for the purpose of the review. I am not being paid.  All opinions are my own (and those of my children)

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
