Choice Tickets

Time

  • 5 to 10 minutes

Materials

  • Paper
  • Scissors

Directions

Cut the paper into ticket-sized squares. Whatever the behavior difficulty your child is having, such as staying in bed at night, give her a ticket or 2 that can be used to choose an alternative. For example, at bedtime, your child might spend one ticket to come back for another hug and another to get a drink.

Extensions

  • Determine a reward if your child saves the tickets and accumulates a certain number.
  • Let your child reward you with tickets that you can redeem for hugs and kisses.
