What Are Behavior Contracts?

Behavior contracts are written agreements that describe in detail what a child's behavioral expectations are. Most behavior contracts also list the privileges and consequences that go along with meeting (or failing to meet) the terms of the contract. Even though behavior contracts are most commonly used between a child and his or her parents, they are also effective in a classroom setting with regards to teachers and students.

Why Use Behavior Contracts?

Behavior contracts can be highly effective as a behavior management tool. They help parents and teachers provide structure and consistency at home or in the classroom. They also help children understand what is expected of them by clearly stating the behavioral expectations. Behavior contracts are easy to use and they give children an opportunity to learn responsibility and accountability.

Tips for Using Behavior Contracts:

*Allow your child to be a part of the decision-making process while creating the contract.
*Be sure to use privileges and consequences that will be effective with your child.
*Be sure to keep a back-up copy of the contract in case one is needed.
*Be precise when describing the behavioral expectations, use language that your child will understand.
*Avoid being too rigid or strict with regards to enforcing the contract, allow for success.
*Follow through with the privileges and consequences! If you don't enforce it, it won't work.
* Consider purchasing pre-written contracts if needed (see above).
