Sometimes, the best way to instill good behavior is to reward children who exhibit it. Carri C. says positive points have prevented her children from fighting. "When I would see them sharing, saying nice things to each other, and so on, they would get a positive point right in the moment of the act," she says. "However, if they do start the fighting, they get one warning to stop or they get a negative point. By the end of the week, if they have more positive points than negative they each get to choose a small toy, ice cream shop, or outing with mom."
