Gem Jars: rewarding positive behavior | teach mama
start the new year with a new behavior system that builds on the positive and helps establish routines!
31 quarters in the jar at the beginning of the month, every day that they do not do their chores, they lose a quarter. Whatever is left at the end of the month they exchange for cash and the quarter jar is refilled. Not to do "allowance" for chores, but rather teach chores/responsibilities as how they contribute to family. Interesting perspective.
earning a collective reward- kids get marble if good at restaurants, parties, shopping etc; not for everyday at home activities and no removal for bad behavior
