    Accountable Kids

    I wanted to pass along a recommendation for a program to motivate younger kids to do chores. We have been using the Accountable Kids program for a few weeks now and it is working really well. We have kids aged 4, 7, and 9.

    We had tried all sorts of things to get the kids to do their chores in a timely way without the parents having the nag them. Nothing worked well. At least one of our kids is extremely absent minded and has a hard time keeping track of his chores.

    Anyway, they picked up on this immediately. It has really streamlined their chores. Where we used to have ask or confirm about specific chores, they now do them themselves without asking or, at most, we just ask "did you finish your evening chores."

    The 4 and 7 year olds have really taken to it and like it. The 9 year is ok with it, but he is the one who needed it least anyway.

    Anyway, you might want to check it out. And no, I don't get a commission.

    That doubled as the chore-motivator AND the anti-drug!

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
