Okay, so, the kiddos in my life are getting to the age where they should start doing minor tasks around the house, or chores. If you start giving children responsibilities at a younger age, it can give them more respect for doing things for themselves and earning rewards for doing so. I, personally, like the idea of chore charts – they’re easy to manage and give the children a visual of their progress and achievements. You don’t have to reward your child with money after they’ve completed the tasks at hand – try an extra story at bedtime on a chosen night or allow them to arrange a play date with one of their friends as their reward. You can even try a prize basket or coupons – check out these great incentive ideas for When the Pigs Fly and Wondermom Wannabe.
Above is a great list of a bunch of different styles of chore charts – hopefully, you can find one that will suit the kids in your life! Thanks to Kids Activities Blog for the great ideas.
