So I honestly am not real thrilled about chore charts... most days it feels like it is more work for me than it is for the kids.... but I KNOW that they need to learn responsibility to everyday I summon up as much patience as I can get and we DO OUR CHORES!
Usually this also involves a review of our virtues first ( From We Choose Virtues)
I AM OBEDIENT, I AM PATIENT, I AM HELPFUL is a repeating mantra in my head...
Anyways here is our chore chart!
I found some cute clothespins from Michaels in the Dollar Sections! So when our chore is finished we put the clothespin on the chart.
Throughout the day you can also loose a clothespin (i.e. Not being nice to your sister...)
Then you have to earn it back!
We don't finish them all everyday, but we try. They are not all done perfectly but we try. It really is a good lesson for M1 because she is a bit of a typical firstborn perfectionist!
We don't do rewards for our chores in our house. It is something that is just expected. We expect everyone to chip in and help. To look for ways to be kind. And to learn to be responsible!
Any other really great ideas for chores??
