So we have been having a terrible power struggle in our house with our son Angel who is 4. I feel like I’m dealing with a teenager when it comes to his attitude, behavior, and rudeness. Yes many of you may say he is only 4, leave him be; however I am a person who likes order in my house as well as a routine. So this is my solution (well solution #1 LOL)…a behavior chart. He will be rewarded with 1 gold star when he shows each behavior. In the beginning we are going to start the star count off small where Angel will have to earn 3 stars in one day and when he does he will be able to pick a prize from his special prize box!! Because Angel is only 4 I am going to do this on a daily basis rather than weekly and see where that takes us. So without further ado on my journey to becoming more crafty I attempted to take pictures to show you the project before and after, enjoy!
Here are the materials I started with.
Here are the behaviors we are hoping to work on:
Brushing his teeth
Cleaning up his toys
Being kind to his brother
Angels Reward box
The Goodies inside!
Our stars for the star system
The Final Project!

Next we were off to the races...no not literally but it sure felt like it. We managed to hit 3 stores (Party city for Halloween costumes, Babies R us, and Kohls) and feed ourselves lunch all in less than 2 hours time! In addition to picking up some more baby clothes and a few needed accessories I think it's safe to say too that we have picked out our new car seat for baby #3 and luckily it will match our ENORMOUS double stroller we will soon be dusting off and using again. Unfortunately no pics from today, but i promise to try and catch up on all that i have neglected over the past couple of months of not blogging so don't worry there will be plenty of pictures in the future!
