Our rewards program is based on report card grades, chores, volunteering and random acts of kindess. Each semester our kids can bring us their report cards to earn points for good grades. Each time we spend with them, we will watch for random acts of kindness towards others, as well as helping out with cleaning up, etc. At the end of each quarter, they can cash in their points for a special treat!
Many programs are designed to give, but not instill effort on the child’s part. We love, but do not enable, as that hinders them from breaking out of these generational cycles.
