Responsibility Charts Introduction

Responsibility. Isn’t this one of the most important values for people of all ages? As parents we want to teach responsibility to children, but sometimes it seems we find ourselves nagging as we remind a child of what to do, over and over. This is exhausting for the parent and a “turn off” to kids. But few things are as self-rewarding for children as knowing they have been responsible and done the right thing. Often, kids just need a nudge to get to this point. Our Responsibility Charts can easily be adapted for your situation.

Selecting a Responsibility Chart

As you scroll through our Responsibility Charts you’ll probably find that some jump out at your as ideal for your family dynamics. (If not, let us know and we’ll try to make one that fits your needs!) Remember that you don’t have to use all the spaces on the chart. It’s OK to start with just a few responsibilities. Or, you can fill in some of the spots on the Responsibility Chart with activities your child already does to give “credit” for those. This can make the other new behaviors you may be focusing on seem more appealing and achievable.

Using Our Printable Responsibility Charts

Once your child can read, you can fill out the Responsibility Chart as you wish with writing/text, describing what you want to see accomplished. Very young kids, will need or enjoy a picture. No matter how compliant and helpful your child may be, a Responsibility Chart can be a positive experience for all involved.

Keep it Interesting

One of the reasons we’ve taken the extra effort to make some of the most visually appealing Responsibility Charts you’ll find is that we want kids to buy into the effort. If the charts are colorful and fun for young children, that will help. For older kids, more simple charts are ready for use.  Look for something fresh now and then, printing a variety of charts. It can help your motivation, too!

Enjoy and Have Fun!
