Do you have a preschooler? Let’s be real, some days they leave you wanting to lock yourself in the bathroom with some wine and chocolate. The good news is that as they’re becoming (somewhat) more reasonable, a chore chart or sticker chart can be quite useful in promoting good behavior!
My oldest, who is 6, does best with a visual representation of how well he is doing each day. This chore chart works great for him because he can see what tasks he has accomplished and if he is doing better or worse than the day before.
And here is a blank version, in case your tasks are different from ours:
My youngest is 3 and is a bit too young to understand the tallying involved with the chore chart, but she loves adding a sticker to the little circles when she does something awesome!
The “prize” at the end of the chore or sticker chart is entirely up to you, whether it be a one-on-one date with a parent or a special treat from the store.
