The best way to reward and teach people of any age is creative consequences. If you have not tried it I would highly recommend you get thinking about it today! It is a win – win for everyone involved. I have attempted to do some creative consequences here and that has not been successful. I decided to share some that work at home.
Everyone in my home is medically retired expect me. So they end up doing some of the chores. I love it when they don’t complain and just help out a little.
At bottom of the laundry hamper I wrapped up a box of treats. There was a note that read “Thanks for helping out. Enjoy your treats.”
I didn’t ask them to do it. They didn’t have to thank me. The consequence was a reward for all.
Do you use creative consequences?
