Ds regressed badly in all areas when star chart was introduced for something else. 2 theories -

Trying to improve one behaviour and focussing on it ballsed up everything else.

Or, deliberately being an idiot so can get more stars for turning around behaviour.

Threw away star chart.

is there anything he is doing that he can earn a sticker for?

we found with DD1 that having stickers on her chart to show off saw her behaviour improve. We also paided out £5 for a fancy stickers chart which comes with stickers and she chose worked better than the home made one too.

can find the website we bought it from if you like, they had some fab designs

DS is 2.5 and I can't imagine a star chart working for him at all.

just a quicky...dont mena to sound brusque?is that even a word??

how about th e notion that behaviour gets worse before it gets better as 'they 'try to cling on to their way of doing things....a sort of defiant resistance..or dislike of change?
