In a nutshell here's why you need these responsibility charts:
Even though you may feeling like you are banging your head against a wall, or sounding like a broken record, encouraging your kids to participate in household responsibilities has numerous benefits for your kids.
The Parenting Centre states: Children who do have a set of chores have higher self-esteem, are more responsible, and are better able to deal with frustration and delay gratification, all of which contribute to greater success in school.
Furthermore, research suggests that involving children in household tasks at an early age can have a positive impact later in life. Kids begin to view themselves as important contributors to the family.
This new mindset brings connection and an increased sense of self. (and self-esteem.)
One day your kids will leave the house, go away to school, or get a job, it’s crucial they know how to do wash the dishes or clean a washroom.
These are necessary life skills. Don’t get caught in this trap: Doing too much for your kids and expecting nothing back. Teach your kids the skills of everyday living.
Responsibility Charts Help Children:
- know what is expected of them
- learn time management and how to establish healthy habits (all while decreasing anxiety). #momwin

For charts and cards I recommend printing on thick stock paper, so it's easier to hang, not as flimsy, and can handle some wear ‘n’ tear.
For worksheets, activities and guides, I recommend printing and keeping securely in a three ring binder. Easy Peasy.
If you've purchased a handy chart or set of cards, this isn't necessary, but boy oh boy, it sure skyrockets things to the next level of fun. Do you have a laminator? (If you don't have one, I like this one). Laminate your resources (amazing). We all know kids are hard on things, so now you won't have to keep printing your chart and cards every time they get a little beat up.
Many of our charts also use Velcro stickers. And this is the icing on the cake. Attach one side of the Velcro sticker to the task card, and one side to the chart. Ensure that you don't mix up the sides. (i.e., the "hook" side should be on the chart, and the "furry" side on the cards.) Now you can move the cards around at your leisure. (Plus it's SUPER fun for kids).
