Year-Round Behavior Buddy
Parenting is hard and teaching important life skills can be even more difficult. Our bear helps to promote positive reinforcement for brushing teeth, doing homework, going to bed, and potty training. It's simple, the happy face patch let's then know they are doing a good job!
Easy to use
“The bear has been a success in my classroom. I have a child with Autism with whom it has been very helpful. I am very pleased with the simplicity of the bear and hope to continue with it's success.”
“Our Bear On The Chair is a big hit at the elementary school! Both parents and students find him welcoming and encouraging. Thank you!”
“I teach a transitional kindergarten class of nine boys with Autism. My class loves the bear. I show it at the beginning of circle time after reminding them about the rules. I tell them that he has his happy face on as they are all in their seats.”
I am using Bear On The Chair with 4-7 year old children on the Autism spectrum. It is a visual, concrete tool that helps my students track their own feelings and behaviors.The behavior modification strategy will benefit any child in the home, at school, or therapy.”
"The kids named him Mr. Bear and I explained Mr. Bear is happy when he sees boys and girls achieving the classroom goals (listening, doing work, and trying). The kids always want to make him happy and when I switch Mr. Bear to sad participation really kicks back up."
How does it work?
The goal of Bear On The Chair® is to help parents, teachers, and others quickly and visibly provide positive reinforcement. As young children learn how to brush their teeth, put their toys away, learn to "love" their veggies, and go to bed on time, we all know the value to positive reinforcement as a future motivator.
When parents are teaching these valuable social skills, showing the child that the bear has its happy face patch on lets them know they are doing a good job. Even if they haven't mastered the goal yet, continuing to reinforce improvement is the key. Hopefully in rare occasions when the sad face patch is used, the child quickly learns that they need to try harder or change their behavior and the bear will be happy again.
Bear On The Chair® has a simple yet effective design. The bear has a velcro patch in the center of its shirt and within a few seconds, the happy and sad face patches can be easily switched out. parents, teachers, and others working with kids
