My chore charts don't work. They are cute and fun, but my kids just don't use them! I think I need yet another idea - something that doesn't take up space, and is in a location that will be SEEN!
We have 2 sets of chore charts right now. One set hangs in their rooms, the other set hangs in the laundry room ... I'm pretty sure that's why they don't get used :P
Here's the ones in the laundry room:
If my laundry room were clean and organized, they might get used more, but lets just be realistic for now. I won't be cleaning and organizing at that level for a few months. But, I desperately need my kids to help around the house.
Without my direct daily attention, our entry way currently looks like this (seriously scary!!!):
I'm tired of my house falling to pieces, but I am not willing to over-do anything while on partial bedrest - I like being allowed to do a few things once in a while, and if I'm not "good", I'll end up on complete bedrest (yuck!) SO - the trick is to motivate my children without DOING it for them.
Any suggestions or ideas?
