Hiding toy for a lesson
We all know that children like toy and it’s one of the first thing they first play with outside of theeir parent before even having any kind of childhood friends. Here is the idea behind hiding their toy; if you children are terrible leaving thing everywhere in the house, scatter things with no concern to get them arranged back. Even after several warning, they fail to heed to your warning. The next time they do this again; take away what they love playing with, as in what they cannot do without in the house and tell them to do certain things in the house, especially house chore that they don’t love doing. Do this by leaving a note where they kept their toy and tell them they will only have their toy back if they are through with certain task you set before them.
They will come to understand that, it is not proper to leave things everywhere in the house and if they continue, they will have to do that which they don’t love doing so as to get their toy back.
Reward your children with gift, price or a chance to do something they love when they do something worthy of your approval, this is not the things they will get ordinarily; they will get this things through the reward box. Here is how it’s going to look like, when they do such worthy things, ask them to pick from the reward box and get something like playing outside a little longer, giving a little extra time to watch their favorite cartoon, gift and any other thing you deem fit for your children as reward.
By this approach, they will learn to earn privileges instead of material things and it will also teach them to do more of good thing in order to have some good times instead of doing bad thing, it is just an incentive for them.
