I posted a few days ago about putting Bunny on “Time-out”. My thoughts are, that in addition to HUGE amounts of love, children also need an amount of structure and discipline in their lives. They thrive off it. To me discipline isn’t just teaching them to learn from bad behaviour, but also rewarding them for good deeds and kind behaviour (I was a Brownie and a girl guide… can you tell?!)
My daughter’s behavioural issues only really come into play during term time (I’ll save the reasons why for another post). So last term we made a behaviour chart, but we didn’t really stick to it, it didn’t have enough of a structure to it and it soon got ripped after falling off the wall. So I was thrilled when the cutesy polar bear from Cool Rewards sent me a rewards pack to test out, including a rewards chart (much better than our pathetic attempt at one!). The cuddly critter also sent me wristbands, bookmarks, certificates, hundreds of stickers and some actual rewards to use with Bunny (useful things like pens, rubbers, pencils etc).
This warm-hearted furry mammal’s generosity does not stop with Bunny though… he is also giving away a huge bundle of Cool Rewards to one lucky reader of mine! So keep reading…
Poor Bunny has no toilet manners! Despite CONSTANT reminders, she never remembers to wipe, flush and wash her hands. So hopefully the rewards chart will help her remember!
By “Good Behaviour”, we mean both at school and at home. We want to get out of the habit of using timeout every day! Therefore if she avoids timeout, she gets a sticker.
The good thing about the rewards chart is you can set how many stickers your child needs to earn before getting a prize and there is even a box to specify what prize they can earn! To help with her reading and her maths, we are getting bunny to work out where her stickers go and how many she needs before she gets her prize.
The full range of Cool Rewards can be found at http://www.coolrewards.co.uk . They are currently offering a FREE “First Aid Rewards Kit” to everyone who fills in the contact form on their website! Can’t get much better than that!
They also work with schools, so if you think your childs school may be interested, please get in touch with them!

Don’t forget to hug the polar bear (or shake his paw at least!)
So we are off to work on our hand washing and vegetable eating (in that order), but will post about our reward chart again in a week or so to tell you how we got on. I will also share with you some tips from the cuddly polar bear himself, on how to use Cool Rewards with your children.
PS. I am aware that Cool Rewards isn’t actually run by a Polar Bear!
PPS. You try looking at their profile picture without going “AWWWWWWW” and wanting a cuddle!
