That's what method they use in my daughters school too. That's a good method Kelly for at home.

The way we do J is this:

He has a little pocket on the fridge with 4 paper cut-out cars in it--Green, Yellow, Red. He starts everyday with the green car on the outside of the pocket (stuck with a magnet). If he misbehaves, he has to put the green car away and put the yellow on the outside. This is his warning. If he misbehaves again, he has to put the red car on the outside, this is a loss of privilege, usually related to the infraction, and the loss of his allowance for the week.



They use the same method at school, except they have a blue car that comes between the yellow and red. If they get a blue at school, they loose part of recess, if they get a red, they loose all of recess and go to the principal's office. If J gets anything other than a green at school, he looses his allowance for the week.



Basically, if he messes up at school, no allowance for the week. If he messes up at home, he gets one warning, but if he messes up twice in the same day, no allowance for the week. We start each day new though, so if he just messes up once a day, everyday, he still gets allowance.



(J also has to do his chores to get his allowance--if he looses his allowance before the end of the week, he still has to do his chores, and if he does not do them, he looses more allowance or has to "pay the housekeeper" (me) out of his savings.

It should be three good stickers in a row. I've never heard of using red stickers. But if you are having an excessive amount I would say 3-4.
