The ideas of token economy and modeling finally clicked. We decided no TV (including watching on phones, or tablets!) after 8:30 and that meant no TV for mom and dad either. We came up with a system using Chuck e Cheese tokens. We implemented both last night and had immediate results! My daughter did whine for TV, but we held firm and offered puzzles, toys and other games until she became tired. We then took out the tokens and she got so excited she ran to the bathroom and brushed her teeth, then got changed and in bed in less than 10 minutes! She got 3 tokens last night for brushing, changing, and getting in bed on time.
She got another 3 for getting brushed and dressed this morning, which happened faster than ever. We had to take away 2 for not listening when it was time to change her poopy diaper and calling her dad stupid. But she got one back after she let me change her. She actually came up to me and said "I want to change my diaper now." We decided 10 tokens this week equals a trip to Chuck e cheese :-) , she's at 5 tokens so far. We thought getting the reward early would have a more powerful positive reinforcement.
