Why a Chore Chart?

At Character Counts, we believe that one of the more important roles of parents is to teach their children about being responsible, developing a good work ethic and contributing to the operation of the household.  These values, when reinforced with the proper tools like a Chore Chart, will help ensure that our children become self sufficient and productive adults.

Creating Character “in Kids” is a great tool for assigning and managing all aspects of a child’s chores.  This app is  a 21st century, handheld chore chart.

Experts widely agree that creating a strong, healthy character in your child starts with three parental responsibilities:

  1. Setting High Expectations of your children that reflect your positive value system
  2. Setting Clear Rules for your children’s behavior
  3. Setting Clear, Natural Rewards and Consequences based on your children’s behavior

Creating Character “in Kids” is a chore chart that simplifies, memorializes and executes these responsibilities.
