Respect, Responsibility, Right Choices DIY Chore & Behavior System

2 Days
Easy

It’s not that our kids haven’t been expected to do anything but with having 3 kids in 3 ½ years, my main goal up until recently was keeping everyone alive and fed without losing my mind. Getting dressed was often optional. So while there have been daily things the kids know are expected of them (most of the things on the Daily Chores list), until now, we’ve never had a formal system. But I am running myself

CHORE & BEHAVIOR SYSTEM BASICS:
1-The main family rules I “borrowed” from my son’s Kindergarten classroom: Respect, Responsibility, and Right Choices. Not only are they basic and simple, they pretty much cover all the bases of “being a good person” and I like the connection between school and home.
2-Behavior sticks are stop light colors. Failure to follow the basic rules (Respect, Responsibility, Right Choices) will result in loss of sticks. If you lose all your sticks in one day, you have to pay Mom and Dad a ticket(s). The kids will be able to earn sticks back by doing extra chores in lieu of earning tickets. We will probably only use the behavior sticks while the kids are young, but right now they seem to work really well for us.
3-Daily Chores are things they have to do just because they are a part of the family and we all have to chip in. No tickets will be earned for those basic chores.
4-Extras will earn them tickets which are equivalent to 25¢ each and will be cashed out each time they hit $5 worth.

I made the ticket boxes with chipboard and my Silhouette Cameo and hung them with "S" shower hooks.

I upcycled an old crib rail to make this which saved a ton of work and money.

    How did you anchor it to the wall? I like it and the color is real nice. I'm thinking of doing something like this to hang coffee cups on. Wold that be strong enough to hold hooks and coffee cups? Thankyou so much for this idea.
