Download free printable reward charts for kids to motivate completion of chores or to help with a child behavior problem. Each sticker chart may also be used with blank award certificates as a fun way to provide your child with positive behavior supports. Raising children is tough. They never want to do what you ask, when you ask them to, BUT if you can help them see the reward involved in doing what you ask, it's like magic in getting them to listen. I've noticed with my own children, I can get them to almost do anything when there is some type of reward involved. However, I always like to mention the importance of implementing other strategies in conjunction with a behavior chart that can help with other behavioral problems you may be having. These are all outlined in my free eBook Taming Your Child's Inner Tiger, so be sure to check it out!
When using each chart below every square has a star in it, so that a kid can color it themselves when earned (kids think this is so much fun!), but you may also use them by placing a sticker in each square as well. I've noticed that younger children especially love these to help them know what to expect each day. Even if you only give them simple tasks of cleaning up their room, picking up their toys, or hanging up their coat, it helps them to learn to contribute to the family and be proud that they are helping.
Be sure to talk about the number of stars that will need to be earned to meet the preset goal and win the biggest reward. Then, in order to encourage baby steps as well, list some smaller rewards your kid may be able to earn for lesser amounts (the dollar store is great for this). Give praise for each star and in time you should be able to gain compliance with praise only.
