I have a new blog especially created for these chore charts, click on the button below!
They are new and updated and pretty awesome!
I have been asked by many to show what I do to motivate
and reward my kiddos when it comes to chores
(or really anything I feel needs to be rewarded)
Honestly, I have tried dozens of reward systems and some seem to stick more than others.
This is our most current one and seems to be working!
They get points for completing chores, helping each other out, helping mom out,
going the extra mile, etc.
Once a week we have a cash in day where they can buy certain items I have on little sheets in
I have so many rewards, some of them include:
mom makes your bed for a week, $5.00 for a book, game night, favorite candy and soda, favorite box of cereal, 1 extra hour of screen time, a visit to a yogurt shop, your favorite ice cream, the front seat in our car for a week, one itunes app, etc.
I think motivating and rewarding kids for things is a lifelong task that works for some and not so much for others. My 14 year old is more motivated by me saying, get it done or no friend time- it seems to be different for each kid and with our 6 it takes some serious thinking!
