Doug and Tammie agree that raising children to be responsible adults takes organization and teamwork. They have tried and failed on other Chore Chart Systems so far the one they have landed on is working and wanted to share the details.

Personalized Chore Chart
It starts with the weekly Personal Chores. Each child can be different on these depending on what it is they need to work on. However, the PC’s are chores they have to do every day. We fill these in together at the end of the day. It gives them input and they are more apt to do them and eliminates the whine factor and we are not talking about your favorite Merlot here.
These chores are the basics as we tell the kids. They are not back breaking just good habits to get into. Things like brushing their teeth, taking a shower, make their bed, do their homework. For these personal chores they receive Merits that are turned in for time on the computer, Ipad, TV, X-Box.
