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.

Parent/child - Body confidence

Parent/child - Body confidence

This intervention programme centres around body image, negative perceptions and media influences. The media more than at any other time holds a power and influence on how young people see themselves and present themselves. The programme considers; how they see themselves, how they are affected by how they look, who influences them, the negative and positive media messages and how they can regain their strength and self worth. FACILITATOR NOTES The intervention can be a challenging one for children and for parents because when we look at the evidence we have all been affected by it to some degree or another. So I would say look at the parent booklet and consider all the points it raises, plus do some research before you begin the programme which will make the whole course more relevant. WHY THIS INTERVENTION? Does your child exhibit any of the following behaviours? (Some may not be connected to the issues within the family or they may be, children often use different coping methods when faced with difficulties) I think every child would benefit from this intervention especially the following; Reported issues with diet Significant purposeful weight loss Repeated flouting of the school’s uniform code Obsessed about their body image LENGTH OF THE INTERVENTION 6 weeks plus one follow up session BASIC OVERVIEW OF THE INTERVENTIONS Labels - What do they think of themselves, what do others think and how that all makes them feel. Feelings - How self aware are they? Have they been bullied, teased or ridiculed; how do their feelings affect their behaviour? Influences - Who and what influences how they feel and act and how does this affect their lives and choices. Negative Media -Media influences and how they can impact and influence the individual and society in general. Positive Media -Taking a fresh look at the media and how some are trying to normalise images and go against the current trend. Stronger - Getting children to view themselves in a more positive light, looking at positive influences and how confidence manifests itself. Progress - A review of what progress has been made and how they look at themselves and portrayed images.
