For some reason lately, the issue of kids and chores has come up several times. My friend, Mary, sent me this little tid bit of info and testimonial. Check it out! It is totally free!
"Shari- This little site (myjobchart.com) has changed the way we work! my 7 and 5 year old love logging on each day to see what their tasks are and how many points they earned that day. It's fun, it's simple and surprisingly our kids stay motivated!
We have customized pictures and points for each child of the rewards they are working towards such as, date with dad, movie tickets or a new toy. We have noticed less whining because our kids know what is expected of them.
We have tried everything and nothing seems to stick! Finally we have found something that we can be consistent with (because our kids reminds us) as our kids grow. If you value work and teaching your kids responsibility, as i know you do, you will LOVE myjobchart.com!"
***Now, if only I could get my 16 year old to think this would be fun. I think I have to resort to withholding car keys at this point.
Thanks for the tip, Mary!
