Quoting Mama*AtoZ:" If it is preplanned and the intended outcome is to make them do it again. As opposed to randomly recognizing ... [snip!] ... warmed by the action. So they feel pride in themselves rather than doing it just to please others and gain approval or rewards."
It is pre-planned on my part to give them one of these coupons for sleeping in their own bed. It is also pre-planned for me to put stickers on their chore charts.
However, I don't intend on giving them a "coupon" every day just randomly. It is my FULL intent to mark off on their chore chart that they did their chores each day. Call it a check list if you will.
I ALWAYS praise my children for good behavior. Because of this I RARELY have behavior issues with them. We can go to the park and mine will always be the ones who stay in the intended area and within site. They know what is expected and are praise for doing such.
IMHO~ I would rather someone over praise their child for a job well done that beat them for not.
