Behavior Tracker

Record a behavior, and pre-determined outcomes automatically apply. You don't have to figure out anything on the fly. No negotiating. No bickering.

How It Works
How It Works

ChildBe — figuratively — takes you on a family road trip! We help you envision your destination — your values — and then map out a route to get there. Each behavior your child exhibits is a move toward or away from your values.

When you set up ChildBe for your family, you will create a list of behaviors that are relevant to your child. We provide an age-specific template to get you started. (If you are setting up a profile for a teenager, we encourage you and the teen to do this together.)

Behaviors are classified as Toward or Away, based on whether they move your child toward or away from your family’s values.

  • Toward behaviors are Level 4, in the Green Light zone.
  • Moderate Away behaviors are Levels 3 and 2, in the Yellow Light zone.
  • Severe Away behaviors are Level 1, in the Red Light zone.

    Each behavior level has outcomes (consequences) associated with it. There are two types of outcomes: privileges and costs. For example, a privilege might be "your choice of movie for family movie night", and a cost might be "no screen time for two hours".

    Let's say that your child Charlotte is in Level 4. She has Level 4 privileges and no costs, because Level 4 is in the Green Light zone; only privileges apply. Then Charlotte uses disrespectful back talk, which is in her behavior list as a Level 3 behavior. When that behavior is entered into the Tracker by you (or another caregiver), Charlotte is automatically moved into Level 3, so an appropriate set of costs now applies; the privileges are gone!

    Charlotte can enter Kid Mode to see what level she's on and what privileges or costs are in effect. It will take time — and the avoidance of Away behaviors in the Yellow and Red Light zones — for Charlotte to get back to Level 4, the Green Light zone.

    You didn't have to figure anything out on the fly. No negotiating. No bickering.

    The decision-making about behaviors and outcomes happens once, when you set up the system. You eliminate inconsistency, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel each time, and you avoid making decisions in the spur of the moment when emotions are running high.

    The behavior tracker can be adjusted any time to continue to match your child's needs over time.

    At any given time, you and your child know what privileges or costs are in effect. ChildBe provides consistency in attaching outcomes to behaviors. That leads to growing consistency in behaviors that move your child toward your family’s values.
