Some friends of ours started a sticker chart to encourage good behavior in their children. We thought that was a good idea and started a sprinkle system. It seems as though at times we get so caught up in punishing the bad things that our children do that we forget to also encourage and reward the good. This is a visual reminder to all of us to remember the good. When Mark or I see the kids helping cheerfully or cleaning up without being asked to, they get a spoonful of sprinkles added to their jars. When their jars are full, they will receive a prize...this time a pez dispenser.
