Kudo Banz- Positive Parenting
Let me just start out saying, that I am not a professional when it comes to raising children! I believe there is a lot of trial and error, what works for one child might not work for the other child and luckily there is lot of love.
I have two toddlers, and I can tell you that even though they are only two years apart, my parenting style changed immensely with the second child- as I think it does naturally because you are not as scared over every little thing that happens to them!
In our house, meal time usually ends with one of us crying ! If you have toddlers, you know what I am talking about. It can be a constant fight over trying to get them to eat anything other than pasta and then don’t even get me started on having to repeat yourself! Some words by the end of the day don’t even sound like real words sometimes (face palm)
So when I came across Kudo Banz, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try a new parenting style…and if it got my 4 year old to actually sit down and eat SOMETHING I’d call it a win- and it has done just that🙌
With Kudo Banz the kids get to be apart of the whole thing- they pick their band, they pick which character they want to be, Kenz helped pick her goals, they get to pick what prize they get at the end of earning 3 charms for their bracelet (We tried to stay away from candy or snack prizes. She chose riding her bike, one on one time with mom, a book of her choice to read, etc) And the best part? The bracelet is in your face! Kenz sees it on her wrist and WANTS to listen and behave…I see it on her wrist and reinforce those positive affirmations- instead of a sticker chart that we forget about or gets thrown away and then I give up.
The point of this bracelet is to help remind your child that with positive actions, comes positive rewards. Everything is hooked up to your phone ( so you can’t misplace it) and it comes with a cute book that you can read your child explaining the meaning behind the bracelets.
If you are potty training or struggling with toddler life– I’d give this a try! Nothing is a guarantee but I’ve noticed a big difference in just a weeks time🙌
