My Job Chart – Getting your kids to help with chores!

by Mama Chocolate on October 28, 2011

My Job Chart is the free, easy to use, online chore chart and reward system for teaching, organizing and motivating your kids to Save, Share and Spend responsibly.

I have always believed that it is best to have your children work for their “allowance.”

Just handing your kids money every so often doesn’t prepare them for real life, and it certainly doesn’t encourage them to spend carefully or save their money.

When your children have to work to earn their money, it inspires responsibility and also gets them involved in the household work, giving them a sense of purpose, knowing they are helpful around the house.

This free online job chart makes it easy for parents to assign chores and more motivating and meaningful for children to fulfill them.

My Job Chart makes it easy for you to set up rewards for your kids. You can set up goals for them to reach, working towards a particular item or cash amount online. When they reach the required amount of points, My Job Chart lets the parent know so that they can fulfill the reward for their child. My Job Chart is linked with Amazon, making it super easy to set up rewards for your kids!

I can’t wait to start using this with my girls! At 2 years old, Katie is just starting to be able to “help” with a few things, so it won’t be long! ;-)

I think this is a great idea! My kids have to work for their allowance as well, although they don’t like it. ;) My 3 year old doesn’t really get an allowance yet, but she does help around the house (matching socks, putting away silverware, easy stuff), so she would probably be excited to be included as well. Thanks for sharing this, I’m going to have to check out this website!

I think this is a fantastic idea for teaching younger children. This really would have come in handy a few years ago when mine were smaller. They are all teens now and automatically know what they need to do each day without being told. I would love to use this with Gracie in a couple of years.

Thanks for the review!

This is great! This would make it so much easier than trying to make a chore chart. Great idea

I always had a chore chart and my children were really good at keeping up with the chores.

I need to get something in place so that I have a better tool to keep the chores listed! I kind of stink at it!
