Good Listener Chart

I love reward systems and have done several different ones in the past, and will probable do several more in the future. Am I ADD or do reward systems loose there appeal after a while? Oh well, it might just be me.

But right now our new family system is "Good Listener Charts" . The concept is simple. When my children get asked to do something and they do it the first time then they get to color in an ear. This will include chores, homework, piano practice, and changing a negative behavior (although this will be something they earn only once a day--at the end of the day. Ex: "Please stop bossing your friends" They will get to color in a ear if that happened the whole day!)

Then when they fill their chart (25 ears) they earn a prize. Which will include anything!!! Okay I haven't bought the prizes yet...but I will.

If your kids are already "good listeners" one of my favorite web sites has a ton of free printable charts. http://www.freeprintablebehaviorcharts.com/
