“The reward of work is to have produced something; the reward of effort is to have grown by it.”― Antonin Sertillanges.
One of the greatest rewards of having a child is getting to help them blossom into a wonderful human being, which means teaching them good habits, values, and ideas. These may even make you question some of your own habits―but nothing worthwhile ever comes easy, right? It makes it understandable that instilling good values and habits is also one of the hardest things to do. So, we put together some easy tricks and tips for you and your little ones.
ROUTINE | Create a Checklist with Achievable Tasks. You can create it with your kids and make it a fun activity. See what they like to do, what they might need to learn, and what they are interested in. You can also ask them to make tasks for you. Perhaps they might like to play hide and seek with you, or have you sew an old toy up.
REWARDS | Create an Internal Reward SystemSome reward systems offer golden stars, an allowance, or screen time. While these are great motivations for kids, it has one major drawback—the rewards become the main value. So when there is no external reward, what motivation do they have to clean, be good, and treat each other nicely? What we really want is for them to value a clean room, being polite, or getting along with their siblings. So how do we do that? By creating a positive internal emotional reward system.
REASON | Highlight The True BenefitsA positive reinforcement highlights the true reason and reward of doing a task.
PRAISES | Encourage Pride At A Job Well Done. Little praises here and there help them develop their own pride in doing a good job. Which also helps make the job more rewarding.
