My kids actually use something similar to this behavior chart in their school classes. This is how ours works: each child starts the day with a green card in the front of their pocket. If they don't follow the rules (which are listed on that white sheet of paper; things like being disrespectful, hurting, teasing, antagonizing, not listening to mom and dad etc) then we'll ask them to change the color of their card so they'll move their green card to the back and a yellow card will be at the front. They have 5 cards total, the last being black. If they get to black, they have a consequence (usually it's 30 minutes earlier bedtime or lose friends or media time the following day). If they don't get to black, however many colored cards they have remaining in front of the black card, they'll get a buck, or in our case, a star (since I already had a bunch from before) for each card. They can save those stars and redeem them for rewards which are also listed on that white sheet of paper. They can also earn stars if we notice them doing something kind or good. They're really excited about the opportunity to earn so many stars and to go on extra dates with mom and dad etc, so I'm hoping this will be a good thing that'll last awhile. Thanks Elisa L. for the idea!
