DIY Printable Punch Cards - another pinner says: "These have been the best thing for my kids and me. No more stickers and charts to mess with…they get punches for chores and for being especially kind to one another. Usually they trade them in once a week for a special treat or a dollar.  But this month they saved up their punch cards for a trip to Chuck-E-Cheese." by jeanine

neat rewards system...31 quarters in the jar at the beginning of the month, every day that they do not do their chores, they lose a quarter. Whatever is left at the end of the month they exchange for cash and the quarter jar is refilled. We decided not to do "allowance" for chores, but rather teach chores/responsibilities as how they contribute to our family. If they don't contribute, they don't have privileges. by bernadette

What I did not know at the time or could have even understood at that age was that my mom had caught my dad in an affair with one of her best friends. Children, if left to process without guidance, do not have the capacity to manage chaos. If no one tells them otherwise, they will conclude it is their fault. by francesca-caas
