Download free printable behavior charts for kids, including one specifically for children with ADHD that can be used with stars or stickers to help with any type of child behavior problem. Whether you are having trouble potty training a toddler or getting older children to do homework, using a free potty chart or homework chart is a great way to motivate desirable responses.
In addition, I highly recommend checking out my free eBook with great ways to prevent child bad behavior. When all strategies are used in combination with other ADHD or autism treatments, children are more likely to succeed.
I think that using the resources provided below can be a fun way to get children back on track, but remember they are not intended to be used forever. Help your child learn a behavior and develop it as part of their routine, then with the use of praise and natural reinforcement they should be doing it without the use of a chart.
Before viewing all of the printable behavior charts for children it’s important to know how to use charts for kids in a way that will give you the best results. Many parents become discouraged when they don’t see a change in behavior after using the charts.
As mentioned above, you don't want to use the chart forever. Therefore, it's important to learn ways to get a lasting change in behavior. so, be sure to check out the link above and read about these worthwhile tips.
I have created a large selection of free charts for kids of all different ages and for all different types of behaviors. If you don’t find the kind you are looking for on one page, it is very likely you will find it on another. So, be sure to view all of the pages as I am certain you will benefit from using at least one of these!
Some will have a place to put a sticker, a place for the child to color a star, or place a check mark. Choosing which behavior charts are best for your child depends on age and what will be easiest for him/her to understand.
Examples for certain behaviors to monitor are given for you to review as well as printable blank charts. Those on the page link above are intended for decreasing behavior in older children.
These are great for younger children or children that are unable to read, in which you are only focusing on one behavior or all generally good behaviors.
You can have him/her place the sticker where it goes, while providing lots of praise and then practice counting with your child until the entire chart is full. Once full, your child will then get his/her prize!
These allow you and your child to have a set goal in mind that must be met in order to obtain a reward. They are generally good for behaviors you want to increase, such as cleaning up toys, getting dressed independently, or brushing teeth.
I have placed stars in each square for the child to color in themselves (this is so much fun!), but you may also choose to place a sticker over each star as well.
These are designed in mind for a child with ADHD symptoms or other more intense behavioral problems. They allow you to monitor behaviors you are hoping to increase and decrease by using a point system.
Each time your child does a desirable response (e.g. completes assigned chores for kids) he/she earns a point and each time your child does an undesirable behavior (e.g. curses or yells) he/she loses a point. Then, a goal is set for a certain number of points to be earned in order to obtain a reward.
Potty training kids can be very challenging, especially for children with autism behaviors. However, using potty charts and the potty training guide I have put together; you may actually find it fun to potty train! I know I had a blast using this proven system with my own son and was amazed at how quickly he learned.
Getting children to talk about their day can be harder than pulling teeth sometimes! That’s why I have created some really great feelings charts to facilitate communication between parents and their children.
On this behavior chart the child picks out a feeling they had that day and then states what caused the feeling. These are a fun, but simple way of getting a child to open up and to strengthen your relationship. They can also be good for talking about major events going on in the child's life good or bad and how those are making the child feel.
Use the chores list by recommended ages to create chore charts for each child or one for the entire family. Not only does this hold everyone accountable for household responsibilities, it also inspires a little bit of healthy competition, which I know works for my hubby!
Establishing an innocent game of chore wars within the home, in which each person to complete all chores during a week wins a reward, makes your reward the greatest of all – a clean house!
These particular behavior charts allow you to have your child choose his/her favorite stickers to be placed in the squares as each task or response is completed. Once you establish a goal and your child meets it, you can celebrate with his/her chosen reward.
Dealing with picky eaters can be a daily battle that all parents struggle with at sometime or another. So, I have created an incentive chart to be used to help motivate children to at least try new foods. Research shows that children often like new foods after trying a food at least 10-16 times.
If you are having trouble motivating your child to do homework or are looking for something to help children become more organized with assignments, these behavior charts are the perfect solution!
Used in combination with the study tips I created you will be on your way to a happier household for everyone. Why struggle every day when it’s as simple as downloading a free behavior chart for homework that makes your life easier?
For children that have gotten really good grades that semester, that often help others in the home with their chores or have done some other outstanding things, you may be interested in downloading some free printable certificates for kids and/or blank award certificates.
It’s amazing how just a simple piece of paper can mean so much to a child! The certificates for kids are a great way to recognize those efforts and can easily be placed on the refrigerator for everyone in the home to see. Used in combination with other ADHD treatments these can be very effective in eliminating bad behavior.
