Positive Reward #2

Bear finally reached his first positive reward.

He reached the goal last week, but we didn't have the opportunity to give him his reward until this week. He chose to go out to eat just him and I and get ice cream. At first I was just going to do a big thing of ice cream for supper, but we decided to get some real food first and then have ice cream too! So we went to Culver's.  Bear got a burger, and then some vanilla custard with m&m's on top. He thought it was so cool.

First of all, he thought he was big stuff because we were doing this just for him. Then he thought it was even cooler because it was just him and I while Monkey and Dad stayed home and had supper. Then he was excited to eat out and get ice cream at the end.

It took him longer to reach his reward, but still had a good effect. I think it's working as an extra reward for good behavior. Now we get a new sheet and start over trying to earn 10 stars. Then they get to choose something special for their next reward.
