One part of our Character Badges program is the rewards chart. Our children love saving the coins they earn from their good behavior, and getting to turn it in for a reward. It’s amazing how often they want to spend their Character Badge coins on simply spending time with Sean or I! And it can be so simple. Recently my 12 year old and I had time alone where we watched a symphony on the iPad together (cuddled in my bed), and then we watched an Andy Griffith together, and had an ice cream bar. Nothing fancy, we didn’t even leave home, but he loved it!
