How to use this behavior contract
This contract is popular because it is open-ended, making it flexible so parents and teachers can adjust it to their needs. The key to success in using contracts is to have a relaxed talk with the child and be sure they fully understand the expectations. While behavior and sticker charts usually focus only on positive feedback or rewards, contracts allow you to build in negative consequences for undesirable behavior, in addition to offering reward incentives. Some children will need frequent reminders during the day about their contract, while others will be able to maintain behavior throughout the determined time period.
