- Icons make it possible for even the youngest children to use.
- Parents and children can personalize the list of chores to meet their needs.
- MyJobChart.com tracks chores, practices, activities and more.
- A built-in reward system offers encouragement to “spend,” “save” or “share.”
- Genuine motivation that makes work and achievement enjoyable.
As the children mark off their jobs on MyJobChart.com, they earn a certain number of points, to be “saved” or “spent” right away to “purchase” a reward supplied by their parents, or to be “shared” as a donation to a charitable organization. While the site allows parents to access an Amazon store link where they can purchase reward items, the site is also set up so families can create “free” rewards—anything from extra TV time, one-on-one time with mom or dad or a family bike ride.
Jennifer Cross, of Fort Worth, Texas, says she was hooked on the free My Job Chart site from the start. Using it with her three children, ages 3, 4 and 6, she has been pleased with the educational aspect of the site.
“I’m a high school teacher and a lot of kids have everything done for them. Parents are not taking the opportunity to teach their kids about work and responsibility,” she said.
She says her children have responded well to the intrinsic rewards and immediate feedback the site offers.
“With My Job Chart, seeing things being checked off and completed is often reward enough for my kids,” she said. “Then we have created ‘extra jobs’ where my boys get most of their points” to earn items from Amazon.
“Now they like to work and they come to me asking what other chores they can do,” Cross said.
Bottom line, Murset said, “MyJobChart.com is just a fun, easy way to instill work ethic and build character over time. And, it works.”
