I just decided to get serious…a) because I need them to get the idea that they need to do chores, b) because I realize their help actually helps and c) because we decided to make them pay in tickets to watch tv shows because my 4yr old’s need to watch a tv show everyday is getting out of hand.

So I added a bunch of new chores (and icons so my 4yr old would know what was what), added the ticket value in yellow tickets and now, when they do a particular chore on a particular day, they add a magnet in the box. The magnets you can get from Michaels or Joanns and I made a pdf of the chore chart to print. I still need to write T’s and A’s on the magnets so we’ll know who did what.
They were all over it today. One TV show costs 8 tickets (for now) and they can still only watch one a day but this way they’ll have to work for it. Ty earned 4 tickets today, which is awesome.
