My son has learned to thrive and learn with positive reinforcement and discipline. I have stayed away from spanking and physical punishment. Time outs and rewards have worked for me so far.
He is getting older and it is hard to keep track of chores as I used to do before. So when I found the FREE online website My Job Chart, I was really happy. It is a free site that allow parents to customize the job chart for the kids age and chores.
I like the variety of chores available (house chores and school chores) and the fact the parent can leave notes for their kids. Also the kids get points that they can exchange later at the store. As your kid complete their "jobs", MyJobChart.com keeps track of their earned points and they can convert them into money to save, share or spend.
This a really cool site and you can either have your child complete the chart online (they have their password) or you can print it for them and then log them in.
I really like that you can enter your own options of chores, which means that you could use this also with adults. I am thinking honey-do list, what about you?
