Chore chart update...

This thing is it!!! We love it. The kids are doing well with it. We've made some good behaviors into habits (washing hands after using the bathroom without being told) and some bad behaviors have diminished (being unkind to their siblings) with the use of the green discs/ red discs. Chores get done with no complaints (sometimes it takes a looooooooooooooong time) and their responsibilities have increased as well.

Like anything else, it only works well when I actually use it! (Like the treadmill. Somehow, I actually have to get on the thing and run to get in shape. Weird! By the way, I'm actually training for a very short fun run in August to appease my husband. He really wants someone else to like running like he does. I don't. But, I can run and it makes him very happy. This works out well for me!)

Here's the chart and here's the link:

I knew you were running, but I didn't know you were actually TRAINING for a specific something... hmmm..... you know something about those goals does motivate one to do something...

I've been wondering about Lisa's chorechart lately.. thanks for the reminder that I was going to email her and see if it's still working for them.

What no chores for Cael??
How about eating, sleeping and that thing he does so well and often?
