15. Create a plan and stick with it
A great way to make positive behavior changes is to start by setting a couple small goals. Choose two behaviors you'd like to improve, analyze why and when they occur, and then take steps to change the behavior by teaching your children the desired outcomes. Good reinforcement for positive behavior may include recognition and/or a sticker chart to work towards a reward.

Teachers know these changes take time and consistency, so don't expect things to change overnight. In fact, negative behaviors sometimes escalate for a short time before things begin to change, so stick with it. However, with a plan and consistency, you'll likely see better behavior soon!
