My Reward System
My reward systen is that of a normal teenage girl around my age. I feel proud of myself when I accomplish the goal I set for myself such as: getting good grades, completing all of the homework I recived that week, and finishing all of my chores. I have a different reward and a different consequence for every task.
I reward myself with icecream on the weekends if I finished all of my homework that I got that week. I do that because it lets me know that I am on the right track with all of my schoolwork. When I see that I got at least all B's on my report card, I use the money I recieve and I go out and buy myself a new pair of shoes. I do this beacuse whenever I wear that pair of shoes, it reminds me of the good deed I accomplished, and it gives me a warm feeling inside. Finally, when I have completed all of my chores that I have to do around the house, my reward is to lay down on my bed and watch t.v for the rest of the day. I do this beacuse it helps me and my body to relax after a hard day of work.
Similar to how I have rewards for everything I do, I also have consequences for everything that I do or don't do. When I don't get good grades(anything lower than a B) I give my mother my cellphone and i start to focus more on my school work until my next report card comes out. I do that beacuse I don't want to have any distractions while I'm trying to get myslef back on track. My punishment for myself for not doing all of my homework during the week by not eating any icecream on the weekends. I do this because it makes me feel bad knowing that the reason I am not enjoying my favorite snack is beacuse I didn't do all of my homework. Lastly, my concequense for not finishing all of my chores is that I don't get to lay down and watch t.v for the rest of the day. I make myself find something else to do.
I use this as my reward system because this is the methond on which I was raised. If you do what you are supposed to do, and you do it right you...
