I recently read somewhere to start now with a "reverse" reward system for my almost 4 yr old daughter.
What you do is give them so much money or whatever at the beginning of the week and at the end of the day if they were bad or didn't do anything they were supposed to do then you take away from what you gave them. So for example if you give them $5 for the week then if they were bad the first day you take away $1 and then they have $4. And you keep going for the week. Then at the end of the week you see what they have left, if anything, and then they can use what is left on something special.
Has anyone else heard of this or tried this?? I am looking for anything to help my daughter learn that it is not okay for her to behave the way she does.
