Sticker Chart

I've been wantingto share this one ages ago,, but  I kept on forgetting about it,,,

I just want to share some tips that I did  for Bianca ,,,  6 months ago ,, I was having a tough time with my  3 year old daughter ( She just turned four 2 mos ago)   

Just out of the blue ,, we had an issue with sleeping ,,, I was wondring what happened because ,, she was never a hassle when she was a baby ,,in fact she was a Sleepy head...

so one time ,, she just wouldnt want to go to bed, she would cry in the middle of night and wanted to go to our bed....
the 2nd issue was she would always cry, whine, protest and just have a melt down whenever I drop her off to preschool 
3rd issue   she doesnt like to take a shower !!!!!!! and that sets me OFF!!!!!
 I have to do something and I have to resolve these challenges!!!!!


1st the Pre school melt down,, I have spoken to her teacher and try to figure out if something happened in preschool, but she said she is perfectly fine once I'm gone and it seems that nothing happened...   
Its just whenever I drop her off ,,, so aside from a quick Bye bye and assuring her that Mommy will be back , the teacher would give her a reward in a form of a sticker, whenever she is settled and happy ..

I also made a Sticker Chart at home , she sat beside me and I drew some pictures and explaining it to her that whenever she is stays in bed at night ,, say bye bye without crying and have a shower  she would get a sticker a day for each...

She was HAPPY with that ,, I bought her stickers and she can choose whichever she likes to stick on her paper... 
It was getting better everyday,, there were days that she would be difficult ,, but I kept on reminding her about the rewards that she would get if she can fill up her paper with stickers..there were days too that she did not get any sticker so she knows that she has to behave...
Every morning I would say that she did Well and Im proud of her !!!!

It took  around 2- 4 weeks to resolve her issues....!!! and it worked!!!! she received 2 rewards from being a GOOD girl .....
What I did was they call Behavior Modification  Therapy..
Any behaviour that is reinforced by rewards will tend to be repeated..



This is her Snow white doll that she received for being good...



And to to keep you updated  NO MORE TEARS in pre school ...
Bed time is a breeze and shower time is enjoyable!!!! Life is Good!!!!!!

Discipline is not a punishment ,its about encouraging, rewarding and moulding the child to behave in the correct way. On the whole , discipline is a very positive thing.
A behaviour which pays off for the child will generally be repeated, so what we want to make sure of is that the pay off coms for the right behaviour , not the wrong ones. By Dr Christopher Green

  1. Good job Mommy Joy! I've done the same sticker reward during Mia's potty training days. It worked like a charm too.

    I like your chart. Galing! And Mia has the same Snow White doll from Mattel. Gift ng Ninong niya kasi nga potty-trained na siya. What a coincidence noh? :)
