We are trying something new to encourage the kids to behave in situations they struggle with. So, we are offering them an opportunity to earn stars for a star chart.
They may earn stars by being good at bedtime, nap time, during "school time," and when watching their educational video. So that adds up to a possible 4 stars a day. This comes with a zero tolerance stipulation. Stars will not be earned easily.
The real motivator is that if they collect 25 stars, they earn a dollar to spend at the dollar store. They are excited. We started today, but didn't have school time today, so they had 3 chances to earn stars. S was the only one to earn a star, and he earned only one star. But, they were visibly motivated. They improved so much tonight at bedtime. They almost got a star... but not quite. I am sticking to my guns on how difficult it is to earn a star.
We will just have to wait and see if this works.
