Do you ever feel like this???
Well, I do way too often! With four kids, I feel like I am constantly harping on them to get their chores done! It about drives me CRAZY!!! So I was talking to my sister and she showed me a chore chart she made for her kids, and it gave me the idea to create one. So here is the chore chart I made....black and white to match my kitchen, but I through in some pink it give it some color!
The top part are the chores to do, and when they complete them, they put them in the bottom pockets that say jobs done! I fill their pockets with the chores in the morning, and they have to have all their chores in the bottom pockets in order to play with friends!
The pink chores are chores they do every day after they get home from school.
The white chores are chores that are on occasion, and I choose which chore they have to do and when.
It works some of the time, I wish I had the perfect solution to making a perfect household, but I don't. So I try charts, and rewards, and they get sick of them and then I try something else. If you have a chore chart, or an idea of how to get your kids to do their work, I would love to see it!
