  • 1. Benefits of Behavior Contract for Tweens and Teens By Jade Robinson Copyright © 2012 by JadeRobinson.us
  • 2. Reinforcement for Rules:Most parents wonder why their rules fail or DO NOT turn effective with their children. The problem isneither with parents nor their rules. The only thing that lacks here is REINFORCEMENT. Think about this,why would your child hear you or your instructions, unless they have their interests fulfilled out of it? Oreven why would you, get into anything unless it serves your interest?Works with all children (including those who need Special Care):Children who are in pre-adolescence (tweens); and who have ADD, Aspergers or similar conditions oftenfail to comply with acceptable behaviors. It is not that they intend to do so. In such situations, a behaviorcontract can serve as a good guide for such kids to carry out day to day functions with easy andexplainable rules and instructions.Structure and Self Responsibility for Teens:Behavioral Contract spells your reasonable parental expectations; and consequences for non-compliance which is as similar as setting boundaries for trespass in a restricted zone. Thus helping you(parent) to create a structure to put your child in discipline.Further, in a Behavior Contract your child vows and promises to maintain an acceptable conduct; ONLYin exchange of which, he will be granted to have certain privileges i.e. s/he understands that suchprivileges can be revoked if s/he disobeys or does not comply with the contract. This makes him/herselfaccountable for his behaviors and actions, at the same time encouraging a sense of self-responsibility.Clear and Common Understanding:Obviously your teens are either unaware of the consequences their behavioral actions can draw (maybebecause they were never really enforced) or unable to presume them (consequences) beforehand.By implementing a behavior contract which will be in WRITING you are clearly communicating theexpectations and the consequences that will be effective on violations. Tending to this, your teens willthink more than once before even acting or behaving in a way that is not according the contract. Hereyou and your teen both share a clear and common understanding of an acceptable behavior.Home Based and Harmless (Non-Hazardous) Behavior Modification:Today you will find very rare home based options for your teens behavior modification, i.e. you mayhave to send your child away from your home letting him/her to the mercy of others, where emotionalnurturing will not be guaranteed. Further it can cost you and your youngster very dearly. So additionallybehavior contract is a MUTUAL and fair arrangement rather an enforced one (which may either beunacceptable or less suitable to your teen). Copyright © 2012 by JadeRobinson.us
