When it comes to creating structure in your home and getting kids on a routine and doing chores, chore chart printables are a fantastic tool.
As the mother of 4 little ones, they’ve been super helpful in both getting my kids motivated to help out (chore charts are fun!) and keeping track of daily tasks.
Which means LESS nagging and having to remind kids of their daily chores.
Because instead, your kids have a visual reminder of the daily and weekly expectations outlined on a handy little chore chart.
PICKING THE RIGHT CHORE CHART
But to create a successful chores system, you want the right chore chart that’s going to work for you and your child.
Specifically, you want a chore chart and chores system that is:
- Simple. No complicated system for parents to enforce and difficult for kids to understand.
- Directions are clear. Kids know exactly what’s expected of them.
- Expectations are manageable. Meaning the child can easily manage the required tasks. Set your kid up to succeed!
