GOOD PUPPY Gift Certificates are designed to create long-term incentives, teaching children to delay gratification. They can be made out to all sorts of rewards, including privileges, gifts, events, outings, treats, etc.. Gift certificates help children manage their own behavior by reinforcing accountability. Rewarding good or super weekly journals with GOOD PUPPY Gift Certificates can help children that need immediate gratification work towards a long-term goal.
To implement this tool, set up the challenge, such as a green gift certificate for a green weekly report and a blue gift certificate for a blue weekly report. Then, fill out the value or reward of the green certificate with something the child wants enough to work for it, and something he would like even more for the blue certificate. Post both certificates somewhere the child can easily see, as a little visual reminder.
To build this tool, print both sides of your GOOD PUPPY Gift Certificates, cut them out and fill out the rewards for green and blue, and privilege losses for yellow and red, then put Roger to the test!
