Reward charts are a good way to motivate children to improve sleep behaviours. Make sure that you make it clear what is required to earn the reward, and make sure the reward is achievable. There is plenty of advice on using reward charts successfully on the internet and there are also many different styles of charts that can be purchased. However there are a large number of reward charts that can be downloaded and printed for free - or they can easily be made at home. The important thing is to find a style that your child is happy with and motivates them.
