  3. Decide on a reward system, such as stickers, points, or tokens, for good behavior or progress toward the goal.
  4. Set a timeframe for using the chart, whether it’s daily, weekly, or longer.
  5. Display it in a visible and accessible location for your munchkin.
  6. Track your child’s progress by marking off or adding stickers to the chart when they exhibit positive behavior or progress toward their goal.
  7. Celebrate and reward your little one when they reach their goal or consistently exhibit positive behavior.
  8. If your bubba struggles with achieving their goal, troubleshoot and adjust the chart as necessary.
  9. Once your little one consistently meets the goal, consider transitioning to a new behavior or goal and continuing to use it as a tool for positive reinforcement.
