Instructions: Color in the bedtime spaces from the top, until you hit the child's regular bedtime. Leave that square blank. Then, each time the child exhibits the problem behavior, color in the highest blank square, thus taking 15 minutes of bedtime.
Note: The bedtime chart is designed to minimize nagging, reminding, etc. Don't threaten to take minutes - just take them without discussion. Remember, it takes up to several weeks for this method to work. Experiencing the consequences is what teaches children; they rarely learn from threats, reasoning, reminding, bribery, etc.
