San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 11, 2009 -- Six years in the making and based on a U.S. patent, http://www.loveandencourage.com/ gives parents and teachers a way to use their own videos, photos, and graphics to motivate their children using "Daisies" that are like sticker charts on steroids. There are five forums included on the web site for parents, teachers, foster parents, and researchers to share ideas and Daisies. There are also numerous printing functions that allow you to print records. While your child is viewing the Daisies and becoming motivated to learn new behaviors, you can print out a sticker chart with customizable stickers.
