This pedagogical app has been developed together with pedagogues and child psychologists and combines reading and rewarding in one effective system for positive parenting.
By reading the interactive stories to your child on your Tablet or Smart Phone you tell your child about desirable behavior, in a fun way. Interaction, animation, rhyme and songs make reading the Kiddie stories loads of fun.

The app consists of 4 themes:
•SLEEPING: going to bed nicely
•EATING: better eating, easier dinner time

Survived a whole day with 3...
I discovered this app this morning and used it with three kids age 3, 6, & 9... who are all young enough developmentally that 'stickers' are important. I just focused what they needed to get the 5 stickers for a 'certificate' on the stickers and the reward.
I define what behavior to reward with a sticker in the four categories... and, if you're quick, you can flip a negative action into "Would you like to earn a sticker for... (the positive version of that action). It's such a shift from our usual negative reinforcement... it catches them by surprise.
I let them use a certificate as a way to 'buy' a treat... to be the one who picks what movie to watch... or to have something special to eat. The certificate prints out with their name... and I labeled it with what they chose.
There are a number of parts of this app that you may also find useful... but having survived the day mostly alone with these 3... I can recommend it for the stickers and certificates alone. I think we may have turned a corner in moving to positive reinforcement... now, if I can figure out how to use it on my partner....
Love the Tinkle Song
My toddlers absolutely love the tinkle song! We read the potty time story every time we go potty. It is making potty training easy. Great app! Would be great to be able to access the songs directly. Thanks!
