This spreadsheet is great if your child is doing a behavior, but you aren’t sure what is causing it to happen. Sometimes it can be as simple as the time of the day.
I started to use this tool and realized that my daughter always had outbursts right around 5:30-6. After charting her behavior, and when that behavior was occurring, I started to see a pattern.This chart helped me realize that I was usually cooking dinner and completely ignoring her during that time. To solve this, I brought her into the kitchen as my helper, and wouldn’t you know it, the tantrums completely stopped.
Hopefully, this helps you identify patterns in your child’s behavior.
