Anytime I would ask my girls to help, their response was, "What are you going to give me?" They never just wanted to help with out getting something in return. I saw on another blog ( 11th Heaven's Homemaking Haven) a post about myjobchart.com. She has 11 kids and was constantly nagging them to get their chores done. She finally decided to make a job chart, and if the kids got their chores done, great, if not, then it is what it is.
Each chore that you give to your child can be broken down by day of the week, AM or PM, and a point value. The more the girls help out, the quicker they earn rewards. The great thing about myjobchart.com is being able to create rewards or set up rewards through Amazon.com. I didn't want to reward the girls with "things" so I chose to create my own rewards. Some of the rewards are as simple as time with mommy or daddy and another is a night at Chuck E. Cheese.
So far, we have had amazing success. Both of the girls love helping, and even more, they love going into their account and putting in what they did for the day.
