The Mommy Store for Chores and Rewards
THE MOMMY STORE
As you might have seen on other blogs or multiple videos we’ve done, we have something called THE MOMMY STORE. Along with Homeschooling, and just the kids contributing to household chores and things, we feel that it’s good for them to earn what they get, rather than just getting what they want. So the Mommy Store has multiple purposes, it teaches them work ethic, they learn monetary exchange, & savings.
We don’t pay with cash for chores, and they don’t have allowances. Chores are apart of taking care of the home that we are all apart of. But we do “pay” in a point system for EXTRA chores. Normal every day chores are first priority, like making your bed and cleaning up everyday messes. Then they can earn points by doing the extra chores.
this is a list of things where they can earn points, these are the chores where no one really makes the mess, but its things that need to get done;
We like to encourage our kids to help others, No we don’t want them to always expect a reward for it, but as they get older, hopefully this will instill in them a way to help them see where they can help others more naturally. So starting out if we see them helping where they weren’t asked to help, we will give them extra service points.
- Help someone else with their chores
- positive attitude
- being proactive
