夏季是Coming!

Not quite the epic words of Lord Ned Stark, I know, but they’re still enough to strike fear in the hearts of parents everywhere. Because summer break is almost here, which means the kids will be home for months doing what they do best… making chaos!

那么家长如何能赶上休息,而是在很多良好的,积极的行为在今年夏天算?幸运的是,对于一个应用程序。

Welcome to Smiles & Frowns and the 5 Cs of Positive Reinforcement

Smiles & Frowns is a labor of love from a team of two dads, Tommy G (that’s me) and Brad. We’re not experts in child development, by any means, but we are experienced in having kids, making apps and figuring things out. So we’ve tried to make a new kind of rewards chart that will work all summer long and beyond.

而这也正是5个铯开始发挥作用。他们是Clarity, Consistency, Collaboration, Consequence and a game-like sense of Challenge. These aren’t features of the app – they’re the fivequalitieswe think it takes to keep a positive behavior plan working over the long haul. So in this five-post series, we just want to tell you more about Smiles & Frowns by tackling one “C” at a time.

Let’s Start with a LittleClarity

这个简单的事实是,孩子很聪明. They get it. If you tell they exactly what the rules areclearly, they’ll generally try to play by them every time. It’s when things get fuzzy or keep changing that behavior plans begin to break down. So everything about Smiles & Frowns is designed to be crystal clear for the whole family.

Clarity of Progress

That starts with the main board view. It’s a super simple scoreboard that gives each child gets his or her own row. At a glance, you can see how many Smiles they’ve earned, how many Frowns they’ve gotten, and how many Spending Smiles that have to use for rewards. That’s it! There’s nothing else there to clutter things up. How are you doing? Just look at the scoreboard.

But the scoreboard is also a simple interface that opens the four doors to everything you need to do in the app. There’s some real power here, and it’s all just a tap or two away.

Clarity of Expectations

当您点击一个孩子的行中的微笑,例如,会弹出要在工作中的各种良好的行为列表。其中大部分是自动添加为你,当你选择了你的第一个板。(我们的预置板让你去真快,他们有不同的行为集合集中,像家务劳动及更多,学习时间和周围的房子一般行为)。您可以随时方便地添加更多的行为,任何预设板或从头开始创建自己的定制电路板。

To give your kid a Smile, just tap on the behavior and submit. That’s it! All the counts on the scoreboard automatically update. And giving Frowns for unwanted behavior works exactly the same way by tapping on the Frown icon. Up pops a list.

We really encourage you to go through these behavior lists with your kids when you first start using a board. It only takes a minute or two to make sure expectations areabsolutely clear.

Clarity of Success

现在到了有趣的部分 - 奖励!有在工作中一个简单的公式在这里:微笑 - 读读=你的孩子支出的微笑,这是用于获取奖励的货币。只需点按现金图标,你可以清楚地看到所有的好行为可以买到。我们甚至还打破了所有可能的奖励分为四个简单的分类 - 金钱,时间,黄柏和目标 - 为最大清晰度。

毕竟,根据经验,奖励规则是...无论工作,工作。所以,你的孩子是否要开始赚取自己的津贴,或贸易的良好行为的一把糖果,或者一个get很酷的新玩具或一些额外的电视时间......这一切都超清晰。人们很容易看到回报,甚至容易给他们。只需选择一个奖励,然后按支出。完成!

Clarity of Performance

And the final bit of Clarity is a big one that most other apps just plain overlook. That’s having a simple way to reviewperformance clearly.

只需轻点您的孩子的图片图标,你会得到每一个微笑的顺序列出,皱眉和给予奖励,包括您已经添加任何注释。

You can praise them for their Smiles. You can discuss theFrowns and start to work on how to avoid them. You can see how they’ve spent their Smiles. You can talk about it.

评论是一种简单的方法,使良好的行为简单,用大量机会的清晰的对话,以帮助您的孩子感觉良好,他们的进展,并让他们吓坏保持对盈利的微笑,并从这些读读望而却步。

难道真的那么容易吗?它是否真的有用吗?可以清晰做出多大的差别?好了,我们肯定会看到它作为难题的一个重要组成部分,但让我们知道您的想法。微笑&读读是免费安装,所以请给它一个旋转,并通过我们的支持链接发送给我们你的想法。我们只是两个爸爸,但我们一直在倾听,并一直在努力让微笑&读读clearlybetter for everyone.

Next week, we’ll talk about howConsistencykeeps the行为列车沿着滚动。

在此之前,运气好有!

Aww I love this! I used to see a lot of people do this with magnetic whiteboards. It’s nice to see an app for this since so many kids have i-pads and such. Good way to teach them to use them for work and achievement not just games and youtube.

Apps seem like such a great way to get kids involved in helping out and behaving well. And I’m sure a scoreboard is a great way to motivate kids and help them see the positive and negative consequences of their actions.

As a teacher with no children of her own, I can only imagine how parents must feel this time of the year. This app reminds me of ClassDojo which monitors and provides incentives for good behavior as well. All the best with this!
