PBIS AT HOME Step by Step How do I use PBIS at home? Research shows that when behavior expectations are clearly established and taught in the home, childrens problem behavior is prevented or reduced. If it works at school, it can work at home, right? Here are the steps 1. Clear Expectations 2. Family Meeting 3. Use a Positive Reinforcement for

Appropriate Behaviors 4. Use of Consequences for Problem Behaviors Step 1 Clear Expectations Create a behavior matrix that establishes expected behaviors for essential routines at home. Use the 3Bs that your children know from school Be Safe Be Responsible Be Respectful Heres an example of a teaching matrix for

home Expectations Getting Up in the Morning Getting to School Doing My Part/Chores Having Fun Together

Homework Time Wait at the designated area at the bus stop. Be Safe Be Responsible Bring my breakfast

dishes to the sink. Be Respectful Be quick in the bathroom so others can use it too. Leave on time to be at school on time.

Meal Time Getting Ready for Bed Watch out for sharp knives, glass, or hot dishes/stove. Follow the chore chart. Put away

what I take out. Show good sportsmanship. Pack my backpack so it is ready for tomorrow. Help to clear the table Pick out my clothes for

tomorrow. Listen while others speak. Go to bed at my designated bed time. You may find that you dont need to fill in every box of the matrix. Choose the most essential expectations for your family. Step 2 Family Meeting It is a good idea to hold a Family Meeting

to present the matrix at home. Explain the expected behavior. (It is a good idea to get input from the kids, but you dont need their approval. Youre the adult!) Demonstrate the expected behavior. Role play/practice the behavior. Explain the positive reinforces and the consequences. Step 3 Positive Reinforcement It is essential to consistently provide positive reinforcement of expected behaviors. Some ideas:

Point/sticker chart: One point/sticker is earned for each expectation met. Then The child could have a goal and earn a reward for reaching the goal. There could be a menu of rewards, some big, some small that a child can buy with their points. There could be a Family Goal: when we earn 50 points as a family we will What are some low cost/no cost reinforcers? Will we have to give stickers and points FOREVER? Well, you will have to do it for a while to establish the routine.

But over time you might find that you have to change it up to keep it fresh, or add new expectations for changing situations (learning to play an instrument, adding a pet to the family). Should kids just behave because theyre earning a sticker? Of course not! A point or a sticker is just a token. The real payoff is the positive interaction. Notes about Positive Reinforcement Verbal praise is the most effective tool for teaching and maintaining positive behavior. Praise should be specific and clearly linked to the behavior you are reinforcing.

Say: I like how you are picking up your toys, instead of, Great job. Say: You must feel proud of your report card, instead of, I am so proud of your report card. Say: Thanks for being responsible and putting away your bike, instead of I LOVE you when you pick up your bike. Say: Great job following directions at the grocery store today. Dont add: Why cant you do that every time?! Step 4 Consequences at Home When problem behavior occurs it is important to: Remain calm. Remind your child of the expectation. Re-teach/model and have your child

practice the expected behavior. Use consequences appropriately. Decide ahead of time what consequences there will be for problem behaviors. More about consequences Give the minimum amount of attention required to the misbehavior. Save talking for when theyre listening. Use a consequence that is age appropriate and related to the misbehavior. Related: left your bike out, lose your bike privileges for tomorrow. Not related: left your bike out, no

dessert. Will this really work? The good news: promoting positive behaviors in the home using PBIS principles is proven to make a positive difference in 80% of families. The bad news (kind of): 1. Nothing works for everyone 2. You have to work at it and stay with it! The difference: YOU will feel more positive when you focus on what is going right. Your kids will respond to that positive change in YOU and give you more reasons to feel positive
