Erin Napier of HGTV discusses how she rewards her daughter Helen.


HGTV star Erin Napier recently revealed how she rewards Helen, her eldest daughter, whom she shares with her husband and “Home Town” co-star Ben Napier.

In a September 29 Instagram post, Erin revealed that she rewards her 3-year-old with painted popsicle sticks when she exhibits certain positive behaviors. The HGTV personality, who previously worked as a graphic designer, hand-painted each of the sticks, which represent a certain number of points, according to the brief clip. Helen earns points for doing things like “putting dirty clothes in the hamper,” “reading a book,” and “putting dirty dishes in the sink,” according to the video. The 3-year-old is also praised for “assist[ing]with Mae,” her 4-month-old sister.
