We'd tried several different chore charts in the past with mixed reviews. They always seem to start off strong, then lose effectiveness as the novelty wears off. That was true of the computerized "My Job Chart" I introduced a few years ago. It really did work for a while ... although I did have to double check little Colton, he tended to get a little excited checking things off and would suddenly have 100 points accumulated. We had discontinued the job chart, but not the jobs (to the kids chagrin). Recently, the boys wanted CREDIT for doing things, and asked the job chart to be reinstated. So I did. It's really just the little boys who are interested. They like to earn points toward small prizes and it is a good reminder of the things they need to get done each day.
