26 May Personalized TLC Rule Chart for Families with Young Children
Creating and posting a family rule chart is a win-win activity for both young children and for the adults who care for them. We know that little ones benefit from predictable environments where there are clear and visible expectations. And, these rules, or boundaries, help children feel safe and secure in their ever-changing world. The adults also benefit from the agreed-upon rules as a reminder to stay as consistent as possible while parenting.
The parenting experts at The Loved Child recommend that all family members be present when creating their personalized TLC Family Rule Chart. By including the entire household, it will ensure that the children feel empowered by playing an important part in the creation of the chart and then hopefully, be more likely to follow through on the clear and easy-to-understand rules. Our rule chart is unique in that it states the behaviors you want to see more of rather than negatively reinforcing the challenging behaviors you want to see less of.
We hope the process of designing your family’s personalized rule chart is enjoyable! Simply, print out the chart and together chose which behaviors your family is focused on seeing more of. And, don’t forget, in addition to our TLC Family Rule Chart, we also have our helpful TLC Feelings Chart and TLC Routine Chart.
