Step Two: Learn how to implement the Chore Chart System
It looks complex, but it’s quite simple. Take a look at the example page. You’ll see a picture of Noah.
- Each day Noah completes his chore, him mom fills in a circle. (Only she fills it in so as not to encourage cheating.)
- After seven days, Noah gets $3. These seven days don’t have to be consecutive.
- After 28 days, Noah gets the prize he’s working towards.
- Note: Remember to reward with things your family values (buying a book, a new set of art supplies, bike ride with mom/dad, going for a long hike, etc, set a dollar amount limit if needed). A picture/drawing of the prize goes in the box to the right.
- Make assignments and paperclip them to the top right-hand corner. Noah gets a different assignment every couple of weeks.
- Noah looks behind the cupboard door in the kitchen to find his list each day to best complete his assignment.
It will take a couple of weeks to become routine, but that is the long-term goal.
