I've fallen in to the trap of rewards my kids with food/sweets for good behavour. As my 9 year old is a bit on the heavy side it's such a stupid thing to do. My eldest is 10. What does everyone else reward their children with?
Friend has a list of activities that child can choose from (so that they don't choose something very expensive or time consuming).
We foolishly agreed to a visit to the National Railway Museum as a reward recently - a lovely day was had by all, but I hope ds doesn't expect all his rewards to be this quality. Will be quite a relief if he agrees to an ice-cream next time!
Points on the star-chart that add up at 10p a sticker and determine how much pocket money he gets for the week, then the chance to spend some of it at a car boot sale. It's a double-whammy because I can withdraw the privilege if he misbehaves afterwards, but he still has the pocket money reward.
