As a teacher, I see and hear many ways in which the educational system and even parents have fallen short in teaching children discipline, responsibility, accountability, and self reliance. I get these children when the lack of these virtues are well ingrained – high school. I wind up having to chip away at some concrete-like habits, amid many sighs and eye rolls, when these bad habits can be completely circumvented early on. That’s where Chorey Charts come in.
We’re very interactive parents. We’re always looking for new challenges that our kids can master. Chorey Charts feels like a fun way for them to practice life skills which a lot of adults still find challenging… I even used it with young teenagers to help them visualize what they were working for. Before long, they were telling me when they earned another green check. They really got into it!
