We used one with Leo when he was potty training which worked brilliantly but since then despite probably needing to I'd never got round to it. Over the summer I used a homemade chart which worked well but has been put away for a while since it lost impact but I missed having something to help me (and Leo) work towards something.
When I was offered a chart from Radical Reward Charts to review I jumped at the chance to get back into it when school started again thinking I would probably be needing a bit of help getting him back into a routine.
Radical Reward Charts have six charts to choose from, colourful and interesting and with the added option of being able to personalise them with a photo of your child.
Being unsure as to how Leo would take to going back to school I decided to wait until his first day to use the chart, Radical Reward Charts come with advice on how to use them including getting them started with early rewards. I decided to reward every 5 places, moving him up if he gets ready for school nicely without me losing my mind!
In theory, this means he 'should' be getting a reward each weekend, which will be simple treats like a trip to the park or staying up late to play with Daddy, working up to a day out when he reaches No. 20.
There are 6 designs - Wacky Wildlife, Reedy River, Gruesome Graveyard, 'Orrible Ocean, Grungy Garden and Creepy Crawlies.
Leo was interested when I showed him the charts we'd been sent but I don't think they really appealed to him, as he was not as excited as I'd have imagined. I'd like to see more of a range of designs, especially more of a 'girlie' option. (and personally I couldn't use 'Orrible ocean due to my dislike of things not being written properly!)
Radical Reward charts are £14 which includes a laminated photo of your child if you wish to supply one. They are 30cm wide and 84cm tall so they have a bit more impact than the A4 homemade charts I've used in the past! I think they are a little expensive for what they are, but if you get a well behaved child as a result then it's money well spent, and of course the charts can be used again and again.
Radical Reward Charts are available to buy on Amazon, or via their website.
I received two charts for the purpose of this review.
