Children constantly seek attention from those who care for them. Your reactions to your child's behavior will determine future behavior. Therefore, acknowledging positive behavior is a smart strategy you can use to increase positive behavior in your home and decrease negative behaviors.
So here are the TOP 3 Ways To Create Good Vibes In Your Home.
TIP #1 CREATE A BRAG BOX
So what is a brag box? A brag box is a box to write a positive note to any family member in your home. Place the brag box where everyone can easily access, and be sure to be mindful of young ones so everyone has a fair opportunity to contribute in their own way. Choose a day, I personally choose Friday, for one family member to deliver the positive notes to others. This is my all time fav because it’s such an effective way to engage all members in your home to write something positive about each other while effectively managing your children's behaviors.
TIP #2 GROWTH MINDSET NOTE
So what is a growth mindset note? A growth mindset note are phrases that encourage your child to choose a challenge and increase achievement. These notes are places in your child's backpack, lunchbox, or calendar. So when your child's in school going though a good day or challenging day, the Growth Mindset Note is there to save the day!

TIP #3 POSITIVE ENVIRONMENT = POSITIVE HOME!
Muslim home environment is one of the most important factors affecting your child’s thinking & learning. A home that cultivates a positive environment provides a space for your child to feel a sense of belonging, trust in you mom & dad & other members in the family, and feel encouraged to tackle challenges, take risks, and ask questions.
So how do we create a positive environment, which creates a positive Muslim home?
1) Words are powerful! Therefore, hang positive sayings on the wall.
2) Have your child choose their favorite quote & create an 8 ½ X 11 poster. Add the poster your child created to the wall of positivity!
3) Create a Home Code of Conduct: A positive and productive Muslim home requires a common understanding of positive and negative behaviors. To establish this understanding, you as a parent need to ask your children to identify the ways they like to be treated. This discussion elicits lists of behaviors that are respectful, fair, kind, and empathetic. Together, parents and children conclude that treating others the way you want to be treated is the best code of conduct, and they agree that this code will dictate the behaviors that are appropriate for their home.
