My wife and I therefore decided we were going to set up our own behaviour and achievement points system at home — if he has a bad day at school, he gets a behaviour point (unlike the FIVE points the school give him for ever misdemeanour), if he has a good day, he gets two reward points (my son responds MUCH better to the carrot than the stick). We’d also give him points for his general behaviour at home. If he gets a certain amount of reward points by the end of November (his birthday), he can have a big birthday party with all his friends.
The problem then became, how can we log these points in a way that’s engaging for him? We’d tried star charts before, and they were fine for a few weeks, but then the novelty wore off, the charts got tatty and he ended up disengaging from the whole process. Luckily, Amazon dash buttons have just been released in the UK, and I was itching for an excuse to do something with them.
