Discuss with your child the responsibilities you would like he or she to perform. At the beginning of each week, have your child place the responsibility magnets on the board. If there are unique chores, you can write them in the space provided with a dry-erase marker. Your child will gain confidence and feel a sense of accomplishment after each star is rewarded. Your child will learn the meaning of responsibility and feel he or she is an important part of the family. After a star is placed on the board, there are a number of different ways to create your own point system.
