Join me as we discuss:
The Gibson Family Pebble Jar System.
How and why it works so well.
How fast should we fill the jars?
How do we be most successful at implementing the pebble jar system?
How do you handle different ages?
I have been talking for a long time here at FPN about the pebble jar system that we use (also called a token economy). At it's most basic form, token economies are a lot like the tokens kids get at arcades for willing etc. They can then exchange them for a toy that carries value to them whether it be a cheap plastic Chinese-made toy or electronic they pick up at the prize station.
While this may sound over-simplistic or patronizing, it can actually be quite effective. When we just don't wanna take the flippin' time to get them a Blizzard at Dairy Queen every time they are nice to their brother, or do what we ask without complaining, token economies come into play.
This allows them to be rewarded and get that ooye gooey feeling when they get something right that builds up to that thing that they are wanting. It helps us financially and teaches kids how to save as well.
Join us today as we discuss the Gibson family pebble jar system and why it helps us reward kids without having to get them some every flippin' time they do something good!
