Are you looking for a checklist to help your child to complete their daily chores? A visual checklist may assist to motivate your child and help them to organise themselves to complete their daily jobs.
Find a range of "My daily jobs" charts in the Your Kids OT shop. Each package includes three charts with either pre-selected jobs or a blank chart to enable you to customise it for your child. There are a range of charts to appeal to girls and boys. Laminate the charts for durability and repeat use.
Children from toddlers to teenagers can help with daily jobs around the house. This helps to promote a range of skills including:
* Social skills - turn taking, waiting, cooperation, language development, sharing, time with other family members in a shared experience.
* Planning and organisation - planning and organisation of equipment and time; sequencing the procedure, motor planning.
* Personal skills - self confidence, sense of achievement, sense of belonging to a family, independence and responsibility.
A chore such as "setting the table" may be divided up among family members if you have more than one child in your family. For example, Child A takes the plates and cutlery, Child B takes the cups and serviettes.
"My daily job" charts allow both children and parents to monitor what chores are completed in a week. This may be useful when pocket money or other "rewards" are given when chores are completed.
