My Job Chart
I don’t blog a lot about all of the things I get in my email every day. After 7 years of blogging, I am very choosy about what I endorse/recommend whether I am paid for it or I do it for free. It has to be something that I find extremely useful for myself, my family, and for you all.
I know many of you that read my blog are parents/grandparents/parents to be/have nieces and nephews/etc etc etc. You are or know someone who is struggling with getting the kids to help out around the house.
That my friends is my story.
I have 4 and none of them are willing to jump up and help. I insist on it though. Not only is it not easy to pick up after 6 people in this house when you’re just one person, I am raising 4 future adults. I want my children to be productive citizens of their communities. I want them to know how to do things for themselves and not expect anyone to pick up the slack for them. I also don’t want them bringing their laundry home to mama when they are 42.
I thought I’d check out My Job Chart when it came through as an offer in my email today.

Then you start filling in chores, which is pretty straight forward.

I’m going to give it a try. See how it goes with my kids. We have used the poster style job chart, which didn’t work because my kids never left it alone. On my computer, they can’t destroy it.
Plus there is the iPad, iPhone, and Android apps.
They can check their chores on their own phones or tablets.
I wish there was a way to CONNECT the chores app to the tablet or the PS3 so that it would turn on until they had completed their chores. How awesome would that be?
Anyway, if you want to give it a go with me, you can check it out here. Let me know what you think of it OR if you have found something that works with your kids, leave me a comment below. After being a parent for over 14 years, I still haven’t found the magic key to open the I want to do my chores box.
