Caught You Being Good!
I really stole this idea from someone on www.pinterest.com. I didn't spend too much time on it, as you can tell with the awkward cut lines. I wasn't sure if it was going to fly or not.
The idea is to NOT harp on the boys all the time for what they are doing wrong, but to praise them for what they are doing right! Each time they receive a tally mark, it is because I caught them doing something good. Tank doesn't necessarily understand the concept, but having him on the board seems to help the "competitiveness" in Turbo. It has really worked too!
My attitude has changed tremendously and so have the boys' attitude. I caught them doing this when I was doing the laundry. Turbo had put in a school movie and built a fort for them to sit in while watching.
