If you have older kids like I do, you know how difficult it can be to get them to do chores. My girls are at that age where they need to contribute to the family chores. I usually only get on them about their bedroom and even just that, is VERY difficult! They have every excuse in the book, as to why they didn't do their chores. I've posted notes, as reminders. I've drawn charts/schedules. I've purchased dry erase charts and made my own chore charts. I've tried to come up with some kind of reward system but then it gets forgotten! It's an endless battle! So as I went on a Target run this week, I found what I hope is a solution to my troubles. A dry erase board (like I've had before) but made as a chore chart already. It also has a reward type system, using stars and the appropriate spaces for them. I thought it was really cute and I'm hoping that it helps even a little, in getting my girls to make their chores part of their routine. I'll try anything at this point!
