Parenting is tough, and it is very easy to spend more time getting on to the kids rather than emphasizing all of the good in their behaviors, character and personalities. We hope these 8 positive reinforcement ideas for kids will help you change those patterns and come up with a more positive parenting approach.
We hope you find these positive reinforcement ideas helpful. Do you have a reward system or positive reinforcement system you use for your kids? Tell us about it below in the comments.
We totally LOVE this idea of letting your kids know that you are keeping your eyes peeled to try and catch them doing something nice. It's also super easy to make. All you need are: a clear container, label, glue, pom poms and cotton balls. This would be great for traveling, or just at home. Every time you see your kiddos do something good you will reward them with a pom pom in the jar and when the jar is full you can make plans together for a special outing or a special treat.

As parents we are usually very quick to pounce on our children's bad behaviors, but sometimes ignore our own bad tendencies like: yelling, nagging, giving the guilt-trip, etc. This concept is meant to be done alongside your children and it is a great experiment in promoting positive behavior for the whole family.

If you are not up for a DIY project at this time, we've also included this Wooden Magnetic Responsibility chart with 90 magnets for you to check out. This hanging chore chart is a great way to promote responsibility. In addition to the chores there are magnets to help improve behaviors like "Say Please and Thank You." You can easily add a reward system that your kids can work towards earning at the end of the week. Check it out here.
Praise can have a powerful effect on your child. Acknowledging his efforts and achievements can boost his self-confidence and help motivate him to keep trying hard and looking for effective strategies to overcome his challenges. But some kinds of praise are more helpful than others. You'll definitely want to read this post that talks about how research supports the idea of praising your child's effort even if they have natural talent. This will change the way you compliment your kids. (via Understood)
