Reward charts are growing in popularity as mums use positive reinforcement rather than discipline to teach their child right from wrong.
However, getting the right chart for your little one can be a nightmare, with homemade ones taking ages to create and store bought ones looking detached and impersonal.
Considering the chart usually takes pride of place in the kitchen or the hall, as a reminder to your children, you want something that looks nice with a hint of a personal touch. And if you have more than one child, a personal chart will bode better for them trying to reach the goal at the end.
But rather than spend hours trying to create your own one on the computer, Gantish – an online reward chart designer for parents - will help you develop one that means something to your son or daughter within minutes. Even if you aren’t a dab hand with technology, the design wizard will help guide parents through the process from start to finish.
For toddlers who can’t yet read, you can use icons for each activity and colour codes so they can understand and recognise the task at hand. The site even allows you to highlight the goal your little one is working towards at the top of the chart, a gentle reminder as to what they will get at the end.
Instantly downloadable, these charts can be printed and used straight away, whilst also being constantly amended as the child grows older, developmental needs change or new areas of encouragement arise.
Gantish are currently crowdfunding on Kickstarter as they aim to bring this project to life.
