This product helps parents reward children for positive behavior. By doing
chores, homework, and other desired behavior, children earn points. They can
then redeem these points for small treats, TV or gaming time, or other rewards.

There are many different systems available for this type of behavior
modification. What makes A2Z Behavior Booster better than paper charts or other
Other adults, including teachers, coaches, other relatives, etc. can login
and credit your child for meeting targets. You can let these other adults
access all targets or just ones which you specify. When you or your child logs
in, you will see what the others have reported for him. There is no limit to
the number of adult accounts you can add.
You child can login and view how close he is to earning a reward. You can also
optionally let your child report meeting some targets and even redeem some
rewards, such as TV or gaming time. This gives your child a feeling of being in
For timed rewards, the program will automatically track the time used. You (or
your child) checks in when the reward time is starting and then checks out when
it is complete. The program calculates the amount of time used (allowing a few
extra minutes for check in and check out) and automatically subtracts the
appropriate amount of points from the child's account. This holds children
accountable for the amount of time they actually use.
You can have up to 10 child accounts. You will be able to access all of their
targets and rewards from your parent account.
Since this is a web-based program, you can access it from any location where
you have internet access. Access it from home, work, vacation, Grandma's house,
and even your psychologist's office!
There are no stickers, charts, or other items to keep track of. Who needs
another set of papers to keep organized?
It keeps track of all aspects of the program and lets you even go back and
review your child's targets and rewards over time.
This product has many other features which make it superior to other systems.
The best way to find out about all of these is to

First, determine which behaviors you want to encourage. These should be very
specific - make your bed, clean your room, do your homework, etc. Enter each of
these targets along with the number of points the child is given when
the target is met into the application. Smaller targets might only be
worth one or two points. More difficult or time consuming targets can be worth
more. You can make these targets available to all of the children in your
family or just one.
Then talk to your children about what type of rewards they would like. These
should also be very specific - go out for ice cream, have a friend over for a
slumber party, purchase a new game, etc. You assign a point value to each
reward. Larger rewards will cost more points and smaller rewards less. These
can also be for all of your children or just some of them.
Each time the child meets one or more of the targets, you (or the child, if you
have enabled this feature) login and record which targets have been met. You
can also create additional accounts in the application so teachers and other
adults can login and report when the child meets a target. Each time a target
is met, the point value which you have assigned to the target is credited to
When the child has enough points for the desired reward, he lets you know. You
"redeem" the reward in the application and the appropriate number of points are
subtracted from the child's account. Depending on the child and the reward, you
might choose to let the child redeem the reward himself. This works well for
things like TV and gaming time.
You can also choose to have penalties for inappropriate behavior. For these
behaviors, points are removed from the child. Of course, this feature must be
used judiciously. In general, the idea of this program is to help parents
provide encouragement to children for good behavior.
