Good Girl Points

15 04 2007

It has been quite a while since I implemented the Good Girl/Bad Girl Point system for Eliana. Over all, it was a resounding success, however, it did have it’s consequences.

First, it was highly subjective, but between parents, it makes it all the more difficult to maintain consistency.

Second, I had a board to write down her daily total of points, but

Third, she was in school most of the week, so I never really had to award any points until the weekend. By then, it seemed a moot point in that it seems that even to her, I was just making things up.

Eventually, we stopped referencing the points as Eliana had snapped out of the extremely terrible behavior that had lead to the system’s inception in the first place.  Although I think she wants that structure even now as she has mentioned the points more often recently, I may have to give this a second try and address these little shortcomings.
