Build a Chore Checklist with Coit
I’m very excited to partner with Coit.com to offer a Kids CUSTOMizable Chore Checklist! Let me tell you why. When I met my husband, he came with three children so *POW* instant family! I went from a somewhat sane 34-year-old to a raving lunatic in a short time.
My biggest complaint?
They wouldn’t pick up after themselves!
Okay, so the kids were ages 7, 10, & 12 when they moved in and, having no experience with children, I relied on my own childhood.
It didn’t take long for me to realize that I was raised totally different and it wasn’t fair to the kids to expect them to do what I would’ve done. It also didn’t take long – maybe a year – before this OCDish stepmom was configuring a chore chart.
For THREE kids!
And this was in the early 90’s. As in, no digital, no easy printouts. My chore chart was hand drawn. As in, I never wanted to draw it again!
So when Coit came to me with a Customizable Chore Chart I was all over it because I know from experience that chore charts work! Kids love knowing what is expected of them.
They might not like the cleaning but they do love rewards!
As I mentioned, the checklist is completely customizable. Watch the video here to see how simple it is. You can edit the chores and the points to suit your family’s needs.
Perfect for this time of year with colder days and the holidays coming!
If you don’t have kids at home, please share this post and/or the checklist with someone who does.
