Children and parents should set goals and rewards together. Parents, encourage your children to share what they would really like to earn. It might not be something tangible; it could be time with you, reading, playing what they want to play, cooking, working, exercising, shopping, watching or listening to a story or movie, or simply getting their way on a choice? Remember how much it means to spend time together and how great it is to be in charge! Click on the link to view or print the chart: Goals and Rewards Chart
Encourage your child to set a high goal if they suggest it! Consider this example: When I was about 9 years old, my best friend’s family moved to Switzerland. (I lived in California.) I desperately wanted to go visit her. My dad promised me that if I earned half the money for airfare, he would pay for me to go. Over a 2-year period, I earned the money. He did not expect I would. But he kept his promise, and I, my mom, and my sister went to Switzerland on a wonderful, life-changing trip.
If you are a parent or teacher, you can print off one of the rewards certificates if you have the password for the certificates page. Please email me to ask for the password.
