This is Dr. Jeff Gardere, America's Psychologist discussing daily behavior charts for parents. Daily behavior charts are typically created by teachers and sent to parents in order to relate academic and their social behaviors of children. Though the behavior charts are an excellent behavioral means to achieving success in whatever targeted goals, teachers, students and parents are often frustrated by them because they're too complicated or try to achieve too much. So, the following are some tips for parents and teachers as to how to get the maximum yield from the behavior charts. First and foremost, keep it simple. In other words, the behavior chart should track and reinforce only one goal at a time. Secondly, in order for the student to buy into the behavior chart, he or she should help create it, identifying goals and rewards. You as the parent should also have input on the creation of the behavioral chart as well as ongoing modifications due to change behaviors, academic or social that you see at home. Make the behavior charts age appropriate. For example, for very young children, the behavior charts should be extremely simple and colorful, attractive to the eye. The recording system should also be extremely simple for both the teacher and the child. So, instead of writing in notations, attach stickers and that's much quicker and easier as well as just more fun. In closing, I can't stress enough that the behavioral chart and the report that is generated should be an equal collaboration between teacher, parent and child. This is Dr. Jeff Gardere, America's Psychologist discussing daily behavior reports to parents.
