Sometimes, without thinking or meaning to, adults respond to a child’s behavior in a way that brings them down; often prompting more (rather than less) of the actions that were addressed. This can cause a child to have a really hard day; increasing negative feelings and depleting self-esteem; often prompting a cycle of inappropriate behavior.
When we notice a child’s positive actions we can help him/her have a “heart” day; one that is filled with positive feelings that improve self-esteem and prompt more and more of the behaviors we want to see!
Use this booklet to track your student’s positive behaviors; increasing more of the behaviors you want to see and improving his/her self-esteem. Mom and Dad can also use the booklet to increase positive behaviors in the home setting.
