Engaging Incentive and Behavior Management Package

Engaging Incentive and Behavior Management Package

Have you lost your way finding a pathway to recapture your child’s focus to simply behave? Sometimes, it’s not the parents but the choice of the child that determines their pathway to success. How can you guide your child in making those right decisions? Well, this Mega-bundle is here to help with all of that! Allow positive reinforcement to drive the interests of your children with an all-encompassing effective Behavior Management Program. This “130” page resource allows for your child’s choice of incentive as they earn Behavior Bucks to cash in using a customized made catalog system. They earn their cash by completing random (customized) chore cards and successfully making it through daily-timed behavior challenges. This program is what parents have been waiting for! There is so many options and this entire program is customized for your creative approach. This package contains a total of 6 different colored-themes (total of 6 children or students). In addition, there are black and white templates at the end so you can create your own incentive system. Save ink by printing in black and white. Since there is over 130 pages, prep time will take some time. So please plan accordingly. Students will love this incentive program and you will see a difference in their behavior once they know they can earn things on their own! The idea is to focus on the most serious behaviors or bad habits. This program will quickly eliminate these detrimental behaviors or reduce the quick outbursts frequently. Please like us on our Facebook page and send us stories of how this behavior program worked for you. I have only received positive comments so far and hope to see your children modify their behavior and bad habits for their best interests.
