My Responsibility Chart

This My Responsibility Chart earns a 4.5 star rating from us. Our son was thriving on having chores to do around the house, and we decided it was time he got an allowance. So, we bought this chart to keep track of his chores.

The chart comes with cards with typical chores for children, making the bed, picking up toys, brushing my teeth etc. It also comes with rewards cards, allowance, extra dessert, family outing, going to playground etc. You set the child's goal, say 20 stars per week. For every chore they complete each day, they get a star. At the end of the week, if they have reached their goal, they get whatever you've put in as the reward.

We hung it up where my son can put his gold stars on each day and he can't wait for "his stars". Then on Saturday night, if he's reached his goal, he gets his allowance of whatever goal we have set for him. It is amazing to see how much this is teaching him about responsibility. If he doesn't earn his stars each day, he's really bummed out. I now have someone who takes the clean dishes out of the dishwasher for me every morning-and he can't wait to do it!
