Tips and suggestions for using chore charts:

Posting your child’s chore chart.
Keep it visible, at their level, and always in the same location. They’ll learn where it is and always
have a visual record of what they’ve accomplished and what they still need to do.

Keeping track.
Use the small white check box in each corner to indicate the days the chore in that row is to be
done. When the chore is done properly, have your child place his/her initials, a check mark, a
smiley face... whatever... in the colored part of the box.

To reward or not to reward, that is the question.
For older children, consider using points and allowance only for designated chores that go “above
and beyond” daily expectations. For example, maybe offer a reward for washing the car, but not
for brushing teeth or setting the table. Most parents probably don’t want to teach their children
that they’ll get “paid” for being a responsible member of the family, but still deem it important to
teach financial responsibility and planning.

Be clear and consistent.
Always explain to your child exactly what you expect, and how to accomplish it if it’s a new chore.
Also, you should be consistent with any rewards offered. Start out small and only offer what you
can and are willing to deliver, whether it’s monetary, a prize, or a special outing. Make sure you
hold up your end of the bargain. Let them know that they can trust you to follow through.

Should I remind my child about his/her chores?
Younger children will, of course, need reminding from time to time. But once they know what you
expect from them and that you do indeed expect consistency, you shouldn’t need to remind them
very often. And, as your child gets older, they’ll learn that it’s their responsibility to help without
being asked.

Give them only what they can handle.
When deciding on chores and responsibilities for your child, make sure they can handle the amount
of work each chore will entail. Especially as children get older, their lives become more full with
activities outside the home.

Teach financial responsibility.
Designate percentages for tithing (10% or more), saving and spending. Here is a great website
that says it better than I ever could!
