Isaak got an award at school. He was pretty excited. They get awards for having good behavior. For a long time I thought awards were silly. Shouldn't have have good behavior without getting an award? Then I realized how they strive to be good. They get excited for all those good/green dots.

He was comparing himself to so and so in the classroom. Mica got awarded in the past.

I said, "Isaak this isn't about so and so, or Mica, this is about you. You have to have good behavior to get an award. It may, or may not happen right away. Your teacher can't give awards to everyone at once."

He seemed to understand. For four days in a row he said, "I had a green dot for good behavior today Mom!"

Now he has an award that he deserved. He's happy about it.

If he gets more of these, he gets a medal, and lunch with the principle.

What do you think of school awards?

Yay Isaak! Good for him. Things like those little awards work wonders - I see it with my own kids, too.

Kids really do love getting those little awards. Allison was excited to get a little paw buck for good behavior the other day. While she is good every day, this was the first "paper" recognition she received and it really brightened her day!

Way to go Isaak! He looks like he is really proud of his award!
