The best way to get your kids to repeat positive behavior is through positive reinforcement. When you see the right behavior and praise them for it, it makes them want to do it again. These obedience charts are perfect for that!
At the top of the chart is the verse Ephesians 6:1: “Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.”
Below that it has the three “I will”s of obedience:
- I will do what I’m told right away.
- I will do what I’m told with a smile.
- I will follow direction completely.
At the bottom of the chart it says, “When I do what is expected of me, I can mark a square.”
Give the kids stickers or stars to use whenever you “catch” them showing obedience.
You will be surprised at how motivated they will be to try harder, especially if you are diligent to praise them for it. (and maybe offer a prize after so many stars are given.)
