This chart, started three weeks ago, has made life so much easier and more pleasant. (I told you I loved charts--see? I subject other members of my family to them, too.):
By the way, I believe it is important to always have one spiritual component on the chart. We want well-rounded kiddos, right? Plus, it keeps Nathan and me accountable to read a Bible story even on nights when we are home late, etc.
After filling the chore chart for three weeks in a row and earning $3 per week, today was THE DAY. He wanted one thing: Star Wars Legos. Since he finally beat the Wii Lego Star Wars game this week, it was only fitting he would earn his first actual set of the toys.
Nathan and I were so impressed at how he followed the directions and supremely focused on his task.
What do YOU do to help your kids grow into responsible adults? I would love to hear your ideas!
