In growth and development, children ranging from toddlers to teenagers show behavioral changes. A responsible parent is duty bound to follow their children’s behavior adjustments even when they cannot see them. Today’s economic demands cannot allow parents to physically stay with their children all day. Children are also required to attend schools where their parents are not present. If used effectively, kids behavior charts could prove to be the best tools for motivating both the children and their guardians in different situations. Below are advantages of using these charts.
They are Important Motivation Tools
If used efficiently, they are important in determining when to apply the carrot and stick method. This means that when a child does something good consistently, the guardian be it a parent, teacher, sports’ coach or a mentor should associate the positive act with a reward. Conversely, if the child’s behavior is skewed towards the negative direction, their act should be punished depending on the magnitude of the said act. This could help the child to differentiate the bad from the good.
They Help in Discerning Talents
When a child is subjected to different activities, the guardian should document the reactions using these important charts. If a child shows high motivation or excitement this indicates their love for that activity. Children are known to react positively to activities that they enjoy. This can help in increasing mentorship in areas guardians think are important to the child but the child is showing negative reaction.
They help Teachers in Instilling Classroom Rules
When a child is new at school, there is no shortcut but they must learn the rules of engagement in regard to the corresponding environment. Given that the transition should be gradual from babysitting to education, teachers should employ this to track and document how children are reacting to the changes in rules and responsibilities. This is occasioned by the change of the source of authority from the parent to the teacher.
They Help in Assessing Hormonal Changes in Teens
When a child is graduating from childhood to adulthood, their hormonal changes affect how they react to different situations. Teachers and parents can use these charts to inform themselves on how to reciprocate to these changes. This is done through analyzing initial behaviors that were recorded in the previous years. Negative behaviors are therefore followed by counseling and positive motivation.
Good parentage is one of the most important aspects in children’s growth. However, if parents use their memory to keep themselves updated on the behavior changes in their children, unbeknownst to the parents, they could lose important information that could be archived in charts for future comparative analysis. A chart is as important as a photo whose value remains the same.
