being a team...
This time around, our chore chart is called "Michael's Responsibilities"...I think it sounds better than chores, and the reality is the list is what he's responsible for.
When he completes a responsibility, he puts a check mark on his list ~ I love that his checkmarks are backwards! :)
Anyway, after 3 checkmarks, he earns 25cents. Basically, when the chart is full Michael has earned $1.25. All of these responsibilities don't get accomplished everyday. For example, we only get the paper delivered Thurs. thru Sunday. He also has to take some of his earnings & put them into his savings each month...
I'll let you know how this goes! Hopefully well - we're off to a good start!
PS~ for some reason it's hard to see, but his responsibilities are: getting dressed every morning, getting the newspaper (from the front walk), setting the table, feeding the dog, & cleaning up toys.
