If you’re looking for a way to help your child stay on top of his/her chores, you should check out My Job Chart, a free online job chart.
A friend of mine is using MyJobChart with her middle-school age boys and they are loving it. She said it’s really been a useful tool for motivating her kids to get things done.
Here’s how it works: You set up a free account at My Job Chart and create log-ins for you and your kids. Then you assign jobs you want each child to do and come up with rewards. You can choose from a list of suggested chores, or come up with your own.
You assign each job a points value. As your child completes their chores, they log it in their account. They can then turn those points in for rewards that you set. Ideas for rewards could be everything from staying up late, to skipping a chore, to money or a special treat.
This is a really easy program to use with lots of ways to customize it for your family and there are apps for iOS and Android devices so you and the kids can access it from anywhere.
If you’re looking for a paperless system to keep your kids on task, give My Job Chart a try. It’s also a great way to show your kids how to manage money with an emphasis on saving, spending, and giving.
