This year my son will grow from being a little boy into being a young man. Like most parents, I'd like my child to grow up learning to be "responsible" but how to teach this to a young child in a fun and easy way? I recently learned about the website Goalforit.com and some of their online tools, like their Chore Chart, which can help children of all ages learn essential skills in a fun and rewarding way.

I like that the site had categories with different themes for me to choose from when making a chart. Using the chart theme preview, I can see how my chart looked using the different themes

Once I have my themes I just click and add the chores to my son's Chore Chart. There's a wide range of goals shown in tiles to add to a Chore Chart. You can chose from Chores and Responsibilities, Behavior or you can create your own "tile" I like that I can list goals that are simple and easy for my son to reach like
  • Wake Up On Time
  • Put Things Away
  • Practice Reading

I can then keep track of how well my son is doing with progress "stickers" for each day. Then at the end of the week, I can use result "stickers" to either congratulate my son for doing well or encourage him to keep trying. While keeping track of goals online is nice, for parents like me who prefer to hang charts in a child's view, there's a simple print option.
