Promote Responsibility with Free Online Chore Charts for Kids

I have lots of clear memories of my childhood, but some of my most vivid memories are of washing wooden stairs with a sponge, cooking spaghetti on Wednesdays, and picking up sticks with my trusty wheelbarrow. Those were my chores, and I don’t remember them so well because I hated them or because they were hard. I remember them because they made me feel proud of myself. (Ok, so I hated doing the spaghetti dishes, but I got over it…)

Now, I’m trying to figure out how to help my son feel that same sense of pride. At three years old, he’s just getting to the point where he can really understand what it means to help Mom and Dad. Right now, he helps alongside me when I clean, recycles with Daddy, and picks up his toys. Sometimes he’s willing, but sometimes it’s a bit of a battle, so my challenge lately has been getting him excited while helping him build a strong work ethic and sense of responsibility.

So, I found this online service called My Job Chart is the free, easy to use, online chore chart and reward system for teaching, organizing and motivating your kids to Save, Share and Spend responsibly.

Kids simply log in…

 do chores and earn points

then save, share or spend!

Kids can even access their own personal store where they can redeem their points.

 Here’s how it works:

My Job Chart gives parents the satisfaction of seeing their kids gain the foundation skills of a strong work ethic and financial understanding. It facilitates fun, engaging, hands-on answers to your questions about chore chart , kids and allowance , and kids and responsibility. My Job Chart even gets a thumbs up from financial expert Suze Ormon, who calls it a “revolutionary family resource”!

Currently there are 351,755 members using MJC and hundreds more joining each day. We’ll have to work pretty closely with our boy since he’s only three, but I’m going to give My Job Chart a try. Maybe I’ll even start a chart for myself! 😉



  1. What a great idea!! I’ll have to remember this for when my son is a little older. Thanks!

  2. I think we’ve tried making paper charts a billion times, but it doesn’t last. I can happily say that my oldest is great at helping out with the bathroom on his own though.

  3. I like it!! My oldest is getting close to starting with chores (you know simple little things like cleaning after himself, etc). So this will be a great way to keep track and an even better way for him to see his progress.

  4. Very creative idea. My kids are beyond this but maybe I can use it to help my husband along with his chore list. 😉

    I had no idea there was one of these online… my older son would love it. Thanks for the review and bringing it to my attention. There’s everything online but never even thought to look for it.
