Post subject: reward system
Hi i need some advice. My eldest daughter has been really good since my baby girl was born 3 weeks ago. How ever as expected we have a few moments !! I.think most of it is down to attention, shes been an.knly spoilt child for 4 yrs so i didnt expect much less.
How ever occasionally she gets a little cheeky and back chats.
I do feel bad though that sometimes i cant give her all the attention she wants though.
I was thinking about doing a reward chart thing,.nothing too strict as in general she is a good girl.
Just things like gets dressed nicely in the morning, helps tidy up after dinner/tea, tidies up toys, gets ready for bed nicely etc etc then rewarding at the end of the week with a magazine or some sweets or new colouring books/pens, just small things really.
What do you ladies think ? I need advice and opinions.

My sister has done this for her lo. He's nearly 4. She said its worked wonders. She has a little set of things for him to follow and he moves up a rocket. She has finishes his meals, tidies up, nice to his brother etc.If he moves up 5 spaces on the rocket he gets a treat. Which are things like favourite DVD before bed, visit to soft play etc. Little people respond well to rewards.
