Rated 5 out of 5 by Soapie0 from Wonderful! No more nagging! Love, love, love this product! As parents we got tired of nagging or felt guilty when we let their chores slide. We don't tie it to their allowance, however. We give them an allowance to teach them about money. We make them do chores because they're a part of the family and we all pitch in. So, at the end of the week if we've all been responsible the whole family gets a treat - going out for ice cream or renting a special movie. We decide in advance what we're working toward. (And if it's expensive we'll all agree on two weeks worth of responsibility). They love the input they have. If they need it, they can always earn extra money by asking for more responsiblity, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by the Enforcer from L-O-V-E IT!!! I absolutely adore this responsibility chart. I bought it about a year ago, and I still use it daily. At first, I chose which chores and behaviors I wanted my (now 3yo) daughter to work on. Now that she knows what they all say, she gets to pick. She would beg and plead to learn how to "show respect" and "keep hands to self." She gets excited when it's time to "take out trash." After a year, earning happy faces is still a big deal. In fact, I don't even have to ask her to make her bed in the morning. Whether or not it's a responsibility for the week, she makes her bed before coming down for breakfast! I hear other parents complain about the "terrible 3s," not me! I love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mom of 2 boys from My son loves being responsible! We recently bought this for our four year old. He never wanted to do anything for himself including simple things like getting dressed and brushing his teeth. This chart has activities that can be changed to be geared towards simple tasks for young kids or more complex chores such as dishes, laundry, etc. It has made my son proud that he can take responsibility for himself and gets rewarded with a smile at the end. It is a chart we will use for years to come. We are going to have to get another because even our 2 year old wants in on the responsibility action.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mel F. from Great tool ! ...although I wish... We love this product for all the same reasons that everyone mentioned!! IF I could change one thing it would be chart placement. It would easier for the Responsibility Chart to be on the bottom board, and the extras to be on the top board. My reason is that I have to place the board very low to the floor on the wall for my son to reach the Responsibility Chart. The extra pieces get in the way by being on the bottom board. Maybe this is just an issue in own house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Just Adopted 3 from Kids as young as 2 can use it My kids are all preschoolers and love this chart. They like putting the magnets on and it gives us a chance each day to both praise and to discuss what needs more work. I've seen it work on our 3 and 4 year old when we say "you need to work on not whining/sharing" and the for the rest of the week, they're much better. I wish there were tiles for "Obeying," "No Jealousy" and "Accepting Mom's Decisions," but we just write those on the blank tiles provided.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Momma Bear Of 2 from Love it Like I answered above my only real issue, which wasnt really an issue at all with my children, but there are some small pieces! Other then that we love it. gave it to my kids as a gift and they loved the idea. My older son (8) says it helps keep him focused and in less trouble (lol) and my daughter (Just 5) for her its a proud/self esteem thing. She gets so happy when she can complete a task and put her magnet on the board. The best part about the product itself is that the course are interchangable and realistic for all different ages depending on the ones you pick. this chart board definately was not cheaply made, all you have to do is look at it and see its a high quality product and i dont have to worry about stickers all over my wall and cardboard flimsy choure charts from other stores!!! all around great product!! THANK YOU!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rebecca from I would buy this again. Best purchase ever!! My daughter is 3 and has inconsistently helped with unloading dishes, picking up toys, etc but now she is way more willing and asks to put up a button afterwards! We don't use it like a calendar through the days of the week, we double the assignments to maximize our opportunity to get buttons. Plus the 1 year old also loves to play with the magnets (supervized of course, these are swallow-able)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ladi from Sanity Saver I have a very willful child, she likes to turn everything into a fight. The worst things were keeping her hands to herself, cleaning up her room and getting ready for bed. I was tired of the screaming matches and I was at wits end because nothing seemed to get through to her. This product saved our household. My daughter responds amazingly well to getting smiley faces. I have the board set up with the smiley faces on a rating system, so she can tell when she could have done a better job. Each day she does what she needs to do the rating gets better. If she has done a good job at the end of the week she gets a special treat. The better she has done the bigger the treat. Since we started this she has stopped hitting kids at school when she is frustrated, stopped arguing about picking up her room - she even cleans between play times now and no more screaming matches before bed.
