Inside: The solution to any parenting challenge you’re having! In a hurry? Here is the link to the Kids Reward Chart Printable.
This is the story of how I used a simple kids reward chart printable to solve my parenting dilemma.
Moms with littles, I’m thinking you can relate
My 4-year-old and I were having a world war 3 power struggle every morning.
I would ask her in my “nice mom” voice to get dressed, make her bed, and brush her teeth.
She would argue, whine, and complain about the whole process, leaving us both grumpy and frustrated.
It wasn’t a great way to start each day.
Can you relate???
I knew we needed to fix the problem for both our sakes.
I designed this adorable owl reward chart for her.
I pulled her up on my lap, showed her the chart and we made a plan together.
If she did all 3 of her morning tasks, without any complaining, she would move a space forward on the reward chart.
When she finished the chart we would celebrate with a big reward!
From the moment I taped the chart on the fridge, she was instantly motivated and excited. By the time she had completed the chart, she had created a new positive habit! YAYYYY!
Of course, there were a few bumps along the way, but ultimately it made both of our lives easier because we had set up expectations and used a visual reminder that my 4-year-old could understand.
When I realized the power of positive reinforcement, I wanted every mom to have access to these reward charts!
Reward Charts are the solution for whatever parenting challenge you’re struggling with.

“Research has shown that the most effective way to reduce problem behavior in a child is to strengthen desirable behavior through positive reinforcement rather than trying to weaken undesirable behavior through negative processes.” – Dr. SW Bijou, International Encyclopedia of Education
Since that original reward chart, I have designed a huge collection of different charts! With the hopes that each one will help inspire kids to reach their goals!
Here are some reward chart styles you can choose from:
- Dinosaur Reward Chart
- Under the Sea Reward Chart
- Ice Cream Reward Chart
- Soccer Reward Chart
- Construction Truck Reward Chart
- Owl Reward Chart
- Superhero Reward Chart
When I discovered the power of giving kids understandable expectations and rewarding them when they have good behavior, I knew every momma needed these! That’s why I created a shop filled with printables to help super moms like you with the challenges of parenting littles.
I want you to experience those same temper-tantrum-free mornings and winning mom moments I did ….
