"Make the commitment to your family. You have to commit yourself to someone else. Specifically, you have to commit to your child that you intend to stop yelling, because your child is really the only person who will be there to keep you honest... Make a "Respectful Voice" sticker chart to reward yourself. At the end of every day, your child decides whether you merit a sticker. This is what keeps you accountable.
Are you against sticker charts for kids? So am I, because they teach the wrong lesson... But since parents have all the power in the family, this is a way to empower the child to hold the parent accountable."
What are your thoughts on this method? I thought it was ingenious!
