Teaching kids good habits is not always easy. Teaching them responsibility is even harder. I asked my readers a few month ago for any tips or tricks they used to get their child to do even the easiest of daily tasks. I was having a hard time getting Carlee to brush her teeth, pick up her toys and help feel the family pets. Many of you recommended the Melissa & Doug Magnetic Responsibility Chart so we gave it a try!
Catch children in the act of behaving well and reward them with a magnet on their hanging chore chart . . . then watch those good habits multiply! Open the fabric-hinged boards to reveal a behavior chart on one board, while the other board keeps all the magnets close at hand. A sturdy cord is attached for hanging. Includes dry-erase board and 90 magnets, including responsibilities, positive behaviors, and rewards.
We hung our Responsibility Chart on the back of our pantry door because it is a high traffic area and Carlee walks buy it multiple times a day. The large cord made it super easy to hang, all we did was toss a wreath holder over the door.
It came with a ton of different “good habit” magnets. We picked the ones that we wanted Carlee to work on and put the rest away for when she is older. The chart has room for seven habits you expect and a spot for a happy face to go each day of the week Carlee did her task!
I was hesitant at first, not sure how a simple chart was going to change Carlee’s behavior but I was amazed at how fast it started working! The very first day we used it I saw a 100% turn around! She picked up her toys when asked and even asked me to brush her teeth so she can then add her happy magnet!
If you have a child that is having a difficult time doing things you ask or doing chores, I strongly recommend you give the Melissa & Doug Magnetic Responsibility Chart a try!
