Can you imagine the peace you could have with the structure created by having the contracts in place?
The child behavior contracts cost .95 for the whole package.
It is very important for divorced parents to put their differences aside and come together for the purposes of creating a unified front for the child, so that one parent does not end up sabotaging another's efforts to bring the child's bad behavior under control.
Kids will manipulate and undermine parents who are at odds with each other, but will conform much more readily to a unified front.
Set Rules in Your House with Parent Teen/Child Contracts Have you ever heard your kid say, “How come I’m grounded? Have you grounded your kid to hear them say “Two Weeks?!?! ” Wouldn’t it be nice to just have it all in writing?
But who wants to spend all that time trying to figure out what you should write, what is acceptable, what should the consequences be? Parent has Parent-Teen Contracts that we feel cover all the basics.
There is even a sample of consequences given in categories.
The parent child contracts are really easy to use, you decide what category the consequence is, put it in the appropriate place, sign and date and voila, you have child behavior contracts between you and your kid.
We recommend that ALL PARENT FIGURES with whom the teen has contact be involved in the creation and enforcement of the Home Rules Contract.
This includes biological parents, step-parents, adoptive parents, custodial persons, noncustodial persons who are responsible for the teens for all or part of a day, and legal guardians.
In order to be effective, all children need to see the Home Rules Contract as fair.
Therefore, it may not work to single out the child with the bad behaviors and exclude siblings, as the offending child will see it as unfair and will most likely refuse to follow it.
