ParentContracts.com is a website offering behavior charts and behavior contracts created by parents for parents. Parents that have been in a power struggle with a teenager or struggled to set rules with fair and consistent consequences have found help in these parent contracts. The printable behavior charts allow families to customize the charts with specific family values and appropriate consequences for the individual child and misbehavior. ParentContracts.com is excited to announce the launch of their redesigned website and looks forward to helping many more families in the years to come.
The redesign of the Parent Contracts website was completed by MadWire Media and provides a new look and a lot of additional information to help parents understand the value and uses of these behavior contracts. The behavior charts are editable and can be used for children, adolescents or teenagers. Behavior charts are good for behavior modification, whether needed at home or at school. The chart can be changed weekly, monthly, or as often as needed. Behavior charts are designed to keep track of both positive and negative behaviors, helping encourage the child or teen by letting him or her see that parents/teachers are taking note of the good things, not just criticizing and looking for the bad. For younger children parents can also add chores to the chart, this helps a child learn responsibility and boost confidence and self esteem.
For more specific teen issues, Parent Contracts provides specialized contracts for the following topics: general behavior issues, curfew, teenage driving, dating, drugs & alcohol, school contracts for grades and behavior, and privileges contracts. The privileges contract can include things like cell phone use, computer and TV time, video games, and networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, and others. Having boundaries and expectations clearly spelled out in a contract that both parents and teens agree to will help relieve conflict and bring structure and positive change. Having set rules and boundaries and implementing positive rewards and sensible consequences will help the child/teen eliminate bad behaviors and give them the knowledge and confidence to make good choices.
Behavior contracts provide the perfect opportunity for parents to start discussions with children/teens about sensitive issues, allowing each person involved to have a say in what is included and in determining fair rewards and consequences. These contracts allow for a lot of flexibility so that each family can customize the contract to their parenting styles and the individual needs of each child. A parent that is willing to let each child have a say in the behavior charts or contracts will find that he or she will be much more likely to uphold his end of the bargain and accept consequences when they are administered. This mutual respect and love between parent and child allows both parties to feel comfortable and in control of his or her respective rolls and duties.
Since 2006 Parent Contracts has been helping families establish ground rules, respect, discipline, and happy homes. The Parent Contracts team, collectively, has more than 100 years of parenting experience and is working to share their insight, knowledge, and experience with families in need.
