How A Good Behavior Chart Can Greatly Improve Family Dynamics


“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.”

Teaching children what to think usually results in defiance and rebellion. Teaching children how to think, will prepare them to make smart decisions on their own. A good behavior chart should be a coherent part of a behavioral and emotional system children can easily understand. Parents applying a child behavior modification system should be able to reinforce good behavior, social skills, communication, family structure and the understanding and verbalization of emotions with simple child-friendly tools.

If you are a parent, a teacher or a therapist, then you too can use the help of the GOOD PUPPY Children Behavioral & Emotional System. These tools, designed to reach children starting at age 3, work together to create a cohesive game kids absolutely love to play. It is their own desire to participate in the game, to take the challenge, to be rewarded for their good doings, to prove themselves, that makes the system so effective at both curbing behavior and growing self-esteem in children, ages 3 to 9.

The system is so easy to use that it takes no more than a half hour to apply it. Once the behavioral system is set, behavioral support tools can be implemented as needed or wanted. Let me give you a quick idea:

Free Tools: All of these child behavior modification tools are available online at You can apply the entire system from printable PDF files, and what’s even better is that the main tools are offered as a free download. So all you need is a few printouts and a half hour to seat down with your child, explain the system, set up consequences and get the game rolling. Just think —You can start improving family dynamics and curbing child behavior within the hour.

Quick Results: Children are quick to realize that they control their consequences by modifying their actions. Shortly they start calculating consequences before initiating defiant or bad behavior in order to get what they want or prove themselves. Quick results are easy to achieve, but it is consistency in the application of the system that will keep improving behavior. A good behavior chart to keep track of results and build a progress report, while supporting consistency from parents is the GOOD PUPPY Weekly Journal.

Focus On Positivity: Driven by rewards, children have an incentive to try harder. Believe in them and they will believe in themselves. Keep rewarding, encouraging and instigating good behavior and that’s what you will receive.

Immediate feedback: You will notice immediate behavior changes. Once the children understand the game, they start correcting their behavior to gain the largest rewards. Watch the child and you can almost hear the calculations taking place.

Good Puppy’s Children Behavioral and Emotional System tools communicate with children in their language, allowing me access to their emotions, supporting my communication efforts and bringing parents the tools they need to build a healthy structure at home.
