A Fun Way to Encourage Good Behavior in Children

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support! For more information, please visit our Privacy Policy.

I was born the fifth child of six which, as you can imagine, led to a lot of misbehavior. On one occasion at a department store, my older brothers talked my sister and me into playing hide and seek. Being small enough, we managed to climb into a rounder full of clothes. When my brothers found us, we jumped and squealed and knocked over the entire rounder. The saleswoman quickly asked my mother to leave. Therein is a glimpse at my mother’s lifelong struggle to encourage us to behave.

This struggle is what inspired The Bear on the Chair™. One family realized that after Christmas, their children’s behavior deteriorated when Santa was out of sight out of mind. Together the family came up with the idea of a teddy bear that was present year round. He is friends with the Easter Bunny, Santa, and the Tooth fairy, and a companion for your child that helps maintain good behavior through positive reinforcement. After purchasing the bear, you read the accompanying book to your child and give the bear a name. You can even register it on their website and receive a birth certificate. It wears a smiley face patch when your child is good and a frowning face patch when you child has misbehaved. It provides positive and negative reinforcement for behavior and teaches children about empathy.

Currently, this teaching tool is in its beginning stages and working with KickStarter to get backers to help fund production. There are multiple pledge packets for those interested in getting their very own bear and aiding in the production of this unique behavioral guide.

It is a convenient way to gently remind children about their behavior without having to bribe or punish. The bear provides of sense of self awareness as well as an understanding of how behavior affects others. Browse information for The Bear on the Chair™ to determine if this would be a good fit for your own children.

  1. Totally agree with you. when xmas time the kids are just so nice as they don’t want to fall in a bad list. anyway, this is a really cool idea. I want one of this bear. i have two stubborn children here that needs guidance and needs to learn how to behave especially in public place. ill check this site out. Thanks for sharing

  2. Wow, you come from a big family! I have always kind of envied big families, though; but as one of the children, never as the parent. I never envy the parents. I just think it would have been amazing to grow up with siblings closer to my age and we could get into all sorts of trouble together, like you and your siblings when you were younger. The Bear on the Chair looks very unique, and an interesting way to teach kids to behave. My interest is piqued.

  3. Awe, the little bear is such a cutie. Our “bear” is a fox, in fact 2 of them, mommy and baby :) It’s such a great help when we go out, our daughter is behaving much better when she’s got the foxes with her.
