We were constantly nagging our kids to pick up their things, clean their rooms, get dressed, brush their teeth, etc... It was very irritating to be saying the same things over and over again. It was frustrating to have to repeat myself numerous times and nag to get things done. Not anymore!!
We found the Accountable Kids Program http://www.accountablekids.com. We are teaching our kids to be accountable one step at a time. It teaches them empowerment, accountability, failure in a positive light, values, integrity, and morals. Accountable Kids encourages positive behaviors by eliminating negative behaviors. It uses tickets as reminder cards, special date cards, privilege pass, best behavior cards, extra chores for money cards. It allows instant results while also working towards future rewards.
It has already empowered my kids to do more things around the house and has given me the ability to let them. They have learned that they have a place in the family and that there are certain things that they have to do to help the family function. It is working wonders with our kids. They are earning tickets to participate in activities and get special privileges. They have already earned their special date. It is fun to see them get excited and want to do their activities. My son cried the first time that I took a ticket for bad behavior. We highly recommend that everyone with kids use this program. You won't be disappointed!! It helps our kids and us to be more accountable.
