We’ve all seen them, adorning the walls of our homes and cluttering our children’s classrooms; behavior charts. Behavior charts can be a great way to increase good behavior in children, build self-esteem, and foster grit. They’re easy to make and simple to use, but doing it right can mean the difference between better behaved kids with happy parents and sheets of wasted stickers.

Behavior charts are simple and do work, and here are a few tips to help make them a success in your house.
