Radical Reward Charts


I was asked if I would like to review Radical Reward Charts- http://www.radicalrewardcharts.com/
As my daughter Millie is 3 years its so important for our kids to get involved with reward charts .

About -

Why are Radical Reward Charts different to other charts?

All our Radical Reward Charts have a 20 step progress route. We have found that 20 steps offers the best timeframe for receiving their reward, without having to dish out rewards too often or too infrequently. Younger children can be given a 'half way' marker reward when they reach 10!
Radical Reward Charts are different from other charts on the market. They have been artist designed to appeal to young people, they offer visual progress by rising 'up' the chart, rather than using the traditional tabular format where 10 stickers may be given for putting away clothes, or 10 stickers for eating all their dinner etc
Our Charts give you the options to tailor their good behaviour activities and not having to stick to pre-defined lists of what is a 'good' behaviour. For example, you may have a pet and if your little one helps feed the pet, or strokes and plays with it nicely, that could result in rising 'up' the chart. Or you may want to reward being kind to a sibling, or helping with household chores. These types of behaviours are not always 'listed' on standard reward charts but we feel that all positive development should be Radically Rewarded.
Our Radical Reward Charts are designed by artist Vita Bosque-Greene, who has developed them through use of collage and painting then bringing them into a digital format. The wide use of images taken from nature adds an educational element to the charts. As your child discovers new animals you may choose to take their exploration of the natural world to the next phase, helping them discover more about the animal's habitat or food source.

How to use
We include advice about how to use Radical Reward Charts to their best effect; when to reward your child with a move up the chart, what types of reward are the most effective, how not to use our charts.
In brief:
    Let your child choose their own chart and get involved right from the outset
    • Get them started straight away with an early reward
    • Motivate them by rewarding them for unexpected good behaviors
    • Lead by example, don't expect your child to put away his/her shoes if you don't!
    • Don't move them down the chart for bad behavior (bad behaviour needs to be dealt with separately)
    Make a big deal of your child reaching the top and make them feel special.

     Millie calls him Mr carrot :)
     Our reward chart arrived in the nick time as we are having a lot of problems with Millie's behaviour. It is hard to work out if its her hydrocephalus causing her brain to react differently or if she is just being naughty. I think it's a bit of both.
     
    The first mission for Millie was letting us brush her teeth. As some may know I am a part time dental nurse so its a must for me. All parents have different opinions but I will not let my kids have sticky sweets or fizzy pop. I will let them have some chocolates as a treat.
    Millie got her first reward on the chart she was so giddy & excited.
     
    We put Mr Carrot on no 1 spot.
     
    What I love about Radical Reward Charts is you can be very inventive with it, even putting a bag of buttons or a picture of the swimming baths for a reward for Millie.
     
    Millie is learning and benefiting from what we are doing for our day to day reward chart. I find it very important to get them very excited and enthusiastic about it so they know what the chart is all about.
     
    I explained what she had to do to get to the next level and what happens when she achieves her goal.
    When using your chart its never a good idea to take away points that have been previously achieved as this can undermine your child. By explaining what you expect and how they can improve is the best way. We had  a very difficult day yesterday with Millie so before bed we explained why she has not been given any points today and how she needs to behave to receive more points tomorrow.
     
     
    Overall I think this works if you are willing to put the effort in. Remember your child will only be as excited and enthusiastic as you are with this so it is important to keep reminding them about it.
     
    I give Radical Reward Charts 4 out of 5
    I gave it 4 because I think the reward chart picture deigns they need more of them some I do find a little odd & scary for some kids .
