Behaviour Response Chart

pdf icon

This resource is designed to help parents to be very consistent in the way they manage their child's behaviour. This is particularly so as behaviour is rarely black and white and you often get situations that are 'bad but not as bad as they can be.' For example, a child who refuses to follow parent instructions. You would praise for compliance, you might ignore when the child follows an instruction but mutters something undesirable as they do. A reminder may be in order for a child who is yet to comply with the instruction. Finally, you may issue a sanction for when they outright refuse to comply.

Dealing with post incident relationship with child

Dealing with post incident relationship with child

An A4 poster for helping to deal with post incident relationships in a calm, supportive way but still communicating your right to feel upset. Being slightly withdrawn from your child for a short period can be an effective sanction for poor behaviour. This helps to delay the rewarding 'making friends' hugs and kissing etc after an incident which can inadvertently reinforce the poor behaviour.

My Behaviour Plan with Pictures

My Behaviour Plan With Pictures

This is a simple sheet in which to agree three desired behaviours with your child. The child (or adult) then draws pictures of the child doing each of the desired behaviours. The quality of drawing is not important as it is about the child imagining themselves doing the desired behaviour. You can use photographs of your child doing the desired behaviour instead of drawing. This plan needs to be agreed with the child when they are calm and cooperative. This is a shared activity where the parent skilfully encourages the child to come up with their plan not the adults.
