Day 23 - Setting Boundaries Part I

Right and Wrong Choices

• teach the difference between acceptable and unacceptable behavior
• explain the consequences - pleasant for good behavior and unpleasant for crossing the boundary
• tell them that the choice is theirs
• teaches them to take responsibility for their own actions
• reward “right choices” with descriptive praise
• use a "star chart” or the equivalent for persistent issues
• have negative consequences for "wrong choices.”

What can help you reinforce “right choices”? What consequences can you put in place for “wrong choices”?
