Help your child grow out of difficult bedtime behaviors through an effective system of rewards and alternatives.
- 5 to 10 minutes
Cut the paper into ticket-sized squares. Whatever the behavior difficulty your child is having, such as staying in bed at night, give her a ticket or 2 that can be used to choose an alternative. For example, at bedtime, your child might spend one ticket to come back for another hug and another to get a drink.
- Determine a reward if your child saves the tickets and accumulates a certain number.
- Let your child reward you with tickets that you can redeem for hugs and kisses.
