Many parents would agree that chores help kids understand the benefits of consistent work.

Have you tried printable chore charts, stickers, reward cards, but nothing seems to work?

This is a great tool in teaching children to work for goals to earn reward (kind of like I work to earn a paycheck) I set the goal of every 200 points earned they (twin girls) each earn a $20 certificate to a store of their choice or $20 towards a larger goal....if the goal is something over $100 I might offer to pay 40% once they earn the other 60%. The girls are excited about finding new ways to help out to maybe earn more points and I don't worry about texting me because believe me they are so exicted about their accomplishments I am hearing about it all the time. I out the responsibility on them- I don't bug them about helping out- I have my own chart and I let them see that I too earn points and rewards so if they don't keep up than guess what I am getting treated to the $20 rewards (:-) of course that usually goes right back into the household budget but they don't know that (wink, wink)- I just feel it is important especially today to teach children reward necessitates effort and that if you really want something you may have to work for it....
I have mixed emotins about this concept. on one hand i think it is nice to go green by using less paper. on the other hand this does not encourage communication, rather than talking to each other, the parent weill recieve a text when chores are completed.
