A successful chore chart and system that really works.
Having a chore chart that our whole family can utilize is imperative to any family, especially a large homeschool family. We all must work diligently together and be responsible for our own specific daily and weekly tasks in order to maintain a house suitable for adequate living.
The Everyday Family Chore System helped me revise our family chore chart and cleaning system. We all got extremely lazy over the summer.
I have to admit I was impressed with the fact that this 88 paged ebook was created by a busy mom of eight and foster mom of over fifty!
This ebook is divided in three parts. The first two parts include many practical and helpful tips on training your children to complete a task thoroughly. I do believe this is crucial for the large family. A child needs to know what is to be expected of them and trained properly. However, this does take time, but it is worth it in the long run from my experience, as well.
The third part of this ebook entails the Actual Parts: How-To-Do-It Cards and Job Labels. Also, blank labels and cards are provided in the back to personalize to meet your family’s own need.
How it Worked for Us
I used several of the recommended tip suggestions and created a family chore chart with only the daily/weekly chores on a dry erase board designed specifically for a chore chart.
My little ones pick up all the toys that are out of place and put them in their shopping cart or lego wagon three times a day.
My favorite part of the book and probably the most useful for our family of 8 are the How – To -Do- It cards. These cards are designed with detailed instructions on completing a specific task ,such as, set table, dust living room, empty dishwasher and even clean the toaster. There are numerous more printable cards that we printed on heavy card stock and have stored them all in a index card box. These cards can be used with any cleaning system, not just the ones that are recommended in The Everyday Family Chore System. That was a plus for me.
I have gleaned and printed the suggested zone cleaning lists that are recommended in the ebook. We do our zone cleaning on Fridays.
I only have positive things to say about The Everyday Family Chore System. Even if you have the perfect chore chart, the How-To-Do-It cards alone are worth the price.
