But we have so much cr&p in the house now I don't want to be giving both of them toys all the time.
    Oh, that sounds annoying! And yep, I know how that feels. How long has this been happening?

    I have one for my 2yo DD. She understands what she needs to do to earn a sticker.

    I have listed:
    -sit and eat nicely
    -be polite
    -listen to Mummy & Daddy
    -put your toys away
    -use the toilet

    I think have 4 columns and 4 numbers per column. If she fills 4 stickers in one box she gets trampoline time. If she fills the whole row Daddy gets to take her out somewhere special.

    I'm not really strict on it yet as she's still little but she certainly understands.

    We started one a couple of months back, when DD was just over 2.5.
    She'd gone backwards with toileting since DS was born, and it worked wonders to get her back to the norm. Not sure how to transition to something else now though.

    Ours is a daily thing...she gets a sticker if she's tried really hard all day, gets to choose a pair of new undies if she's stayed dry all day, and gets a reward of her choosing if she tries hard all week. So far she's chosen sticker/activity books, reading extra stories at bedtime and a small stuffed toy.

    Ooooh I think extra stories at bedtime could be a real winner here!

    What sort of special places does she get to go to?

    @FearlessLeader sometimes they'll go to her favourite parks or up to my in-laws farm for a day trip or they might just go out for lunch together for pizza and a spearmint milkshake 😉 Not only is it great for my DH and DD to spend one on one time together I also get a time out!

    Well here is DD's star chart no one could accuse my daughter of being a minimalist! Wish us luck, I think we could be in for a rough evening 😬

    We tried star charts for DSD for sleeping. Reward was a new DVD.
    Never worked.

    So we switched to getting "A BIG X" when she didn't sleep. No repurcussions, just an X on a chart. That worked much better for her. She was around 3 at the time.

    Now we have "Must DO" charts- they have 6 things each. They don't get rewards for this.
    They get rewards (pocket money) for good behaviour, or being extra helpful/nice etc.
