Holiday planner - new free printable

Holiday planner - new free printable

Posted on 15 september 2017


One more new planner on this parenting website: a holiday planner, especially for kids who need structure! With this planner, they can fill in for 5 days what they intend to do. This prevents children from being bored or just wanting to play on a screen: television, phone, tablet, etc. Parenting tip: agree upon the rule that a screen can be filled in once a day and on the other moments of the day other activities should be planned, including at least one outdoor activity and a chore.

New pain scale chart

New pain scale chart

Posted on 15 september 2017


Finally I got time to add a couple of new charts. One of them I made on request of a mother of whom the son needsdaily  injections. She would like to help him en hopes that the pain scale will help him see his pain is decreasing over time. The reward sticker is there for positive stimulations. I am very glad she asked me to devellop a chart for her son. Hopefully it helps! In case you miss a chart on my website or if you miss a translation (on the Dutch version of my website more charts are avaible) please contact me (hanne@peer3.nl) If you have a good idea I probably will make the chart for you.

Shoe calendars Sinterklaas

Shoe calendars Sinterklaas

Posted on 7 november 2016


Today I posted new free printable shoecalendars on this website. This is fun for parents and children who celebrate the traditional Dutch and Belgian Sinterklaas. On a shoe calendar Sinterklaas or Piet can indicate if your child can place his shoe in front of the fireplace in the evening and will receive a present in his shoe next morning. Piet can indicate this by colouring the shoes of those days for example. This creates clarity and perhaps reduces stress a little. Maybe it also decreases the number of times your child asks if the shoe may be put ... your child can put this shoe calendar in his shoe, the next morning, he finds a list filled in by Sinterklaas or Piet in his shoe! There is also a countdown calendar for 5 dec or 6 dec the day of presents!! Or a countdown calendar till the day Sinterklaas arrives.

Chore list for kids

Chore list for kids

Posted on 25 september 2014


I have made a list showing chores that children can do to help at home. They are simple chores that young children can do as well. There is also a chore list on which you can fill in the chores yourself. I suggest to do this together with your child so you can both decide what he / she could do. I personally use the card for a few months now and my kids do love to help me and do chores. As a reward, they are allowed to choose a movie that we can watch as a family on Friday evening. To earn their reward they need to have done at least 20 chores. I can highly recommend this kids chore. You'll also notice that your children can do a lot more than you previously expect of them.

Use an emotion thermometer after holidays

Use an emotion thermometer after holidays

Posted on 8 september 2014


After the long and glorious summer the school program has started again. And I do not know how it at your home, but our children are very easily angered since then and fight more. They themselves hardly realise that there are ongoing discussions and they are talking to each other in an angry tone. I find it very unsociable, but if I do say something about it, it turns out even worse ... Therefore, I think I'll start with the emotion thermometer. Perhaps, as they learn to recognize their feeling, that they can be more easily held accountable and be able to do something about it. I think that their angry behaviour has to do with stress and fatigue. They have such a busy programm after the holidays! This is the emotion thermometer I mean. You can also download it from this website at the page 'pictograms'.

My child says jokingly

My child says jokingly "stupid" "madman" "idiot" ... Is that bad?

Posted on 6 june 2014


That slowly creeps into it. Children hear the words regularly in the school and on television. Without them really understand what they say they use these words for fun. Just because it sounds funny or to tease each other. Once I say some about it and other times I just ignore it. The other time it bothers me even more because it is meant to tease. It seems very innocent and they know not what they say, but it feels good for me. Sometimes they even say to other adults "madman". What I think is difficult about this behavior is that I they are curious how I'll react, they are looking for a response. So no matter how I do react, smile or get angry, they get their attention. Ignore it, then? Just ignore it, it does not seem a good solution to me. They need to understand what they say, and that you can hurt another with it. Explain the meaning is therefore important, I think. And there are social rules that people have agreed on, for instance: Never say those words to adults or people you do not know well, because that's brutal/rude. And people do not like naughty children, so they will get troubles saying these words. Other people become sad or angry because they think you'll find their really mad or a dumb. So if you use these words and another suffers from it, that's not kind of you. Even against my three year old, I'm going to tell you this, although it is still difficult for her to understand. I believe the more often they hear something sooner they do so, and eventually understand. So my plan to deal with this is: Explain the significance and why another may suffer as they use these wordsIgnoring long as no one suffers fromCorrect if there is another person is suffering from itMy upbringing ultimate goal behind this is that I want to learn my children to take others into account. And I want them to learn how you you should behave in society.

How to use a reward chart?Temporarily use of a reward chart may well help to learn children new behavior or to unlearn bad behavior. The reward chart works as an additional incentive. For a child tangible reward stickers are often more attractive than a happy reaction from a parent. After a while, if the behavior is more natural for the child, the reward can be reduced and the positive reaction of ..
