102030GO! Review & GIVEAWAY!

102030GO!

There are many chore charts and "how-to-get-your-children-to-do-their-chores" systems on the market.  What drew me to 102030GO! is the integration of prayer, quiet time, and character building each day in ADDITION to reading and household chores.  That's what I think makes this program, created by Christian parents of 6, stand out from others!

From the 102030GO! website:

"So we needed a system and one that didn't require a lot of maintenance. We didn't want to fight with the kids over chores or hear their sighs every time we asked them to do something around the house. We wanted them to take responsibility for their homework and education. We also wanted to give more attention to nurturing their faith and prayer lives—a daily opportunity to talk to them about their prayers and conversations with God. We needed a system that guided our children and allowed them to be active, responsible participants in maintaining our household, their schoolwork and their faith."

HOW IT WORKS:






Our Experience:

After putting up our prayer chart, we set to work on the customizable chore chart.  We did modify it some because my kids are pretty well versed in the everyday things such as making beds and tidying rooms.  It was helpful to post the 'room of the day' that needed to be cleaned in a general column and then those child specific chores in that specific child's column.

At the core of this program is 10 minutes of prayer/devotional time, 20 minutes of reading and 30 minutes of chores/responsibilities.  We already have a set devotional, reading, and chore time.  These are mostly observed as a part of our homeschooling day.  The new 'thing' for us was the character trait cards and the daily check off at the back of the card.  Everyone really liked these!  It was a bit of a trick to get my kids to remember to bring the card to me to be checked every night.  BUT, after a few missed days of their paydays/rewards their memories got better!

That being said, for a family that doesn't have a set schedule for bible reading, reading and/or chores, this is a perfect solution and great place to start getting some order in your household!
