I want to see/hear some of your chore stsyems; charts, jars, etc. I have a bunch of ideas, Pinterest helped with some...haha, but I can't decide which is going to be most effective and easiest to keep up with.

My kids are older so they just know what their responsibilities are.  We do have a calendar that tells who's night it is to do the dishes.

We aren't quite into that phase yet. I think I will start out with just a chore a day. She will be 4. So keeping her room clean, helping fold wash cloths, putting shoes away on the shoe rack, little things like that. 

So we will probably need a chore chart of some sort.

DD is 3 and has chores. Same things every day. We have a routine.

But I love this:

 We've done a variety of things over the years, depending on the age. We started out with a chart and a drawing for each chore (a bed, toybox) on the left side of the page, then the days on the week across the top, and we put a sticker when she did the chore, later we did stars, then later just a checkmark.

Dd's only "chore" is feeding the dog. For a while we did have a whiteboard checklist with magnetic stars on the fridge. We were having trouble with daily routines and responsibility so we had a list. Brushing teeth, getting dressed, going to bed without getting back up, picking up after dinner, things like that. She got rewards each week if she had a certain number of stars.

I love this for when they are a bit older!

No real system. I told her what she was responsible for, she does it.
