Parent-Resources review

Are you looking for some resources to help you set goals, get organized, and get it together for the kiddos. I love using charts to help my son see his achievements and progress. We keep a chart on the refrigerator currently. But with everything going hi-tech and online we needed to find something up-to-date. I like when you can find all those resources in one page.

There are FREE Chore Charts and Behavior Charts with lessons, that including:

-Responsibility- A Chore Chart is an ideal way to help your kids feel like they are making a contribution to their family by doing their part around the house.

-Understanding right from wrong- Setting behavior goals is an important way to help children strengthen their character and judgment.

-Healthy Habits- Teaching good habits involving nutrition and physical activity are the cornerstone of prevent obesity in children and adolescents.

-Money Matters- The optional point system teaches children three important lessons for managing money; earning, spending and saving.

With me having a tween and trying to keep up with his schedule along with my own, it is so easy to just create a chart for all the things we need. I am personally a list person. My husband hates it but it is a way I can keep organized and on top of things. This is a tool I hope to pass on to my son. He is not very organize but who as a tween or teen really was? Life will always be complicated but when it all on paper it is easier to manage. These charts help me and my tween as on top of things regardless of the task. The chore chart is my favorite to create and use with my son.
