Carrot or Stick
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!

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)
