This is the best Chore System around! After trying numerous methods, I am so happy that I found the Job Jar. My kids (5 and 6) love choosing jobs from the jar and are excited to do their chores and get points for rewards. We had our first family meeting and everyone was excited to "play"...even us parents are participating! Your wonderful chore system has helped our family be more of a team when it comes to getting the chores done. Thank you for creating such a fun and motivating system that takes the "work" out of our daily "jobs"...truly the best chore system around! I highly recommend the Job Jar!

About

The Original Job Jar Household Chore System

The Job Jar Household Chore system was created in 1989, my kids were 5, 11 and 34.

If I had the kids pick a number or draw a straw, I could usually resolve conflict.

Bottom line you picked it … you own it. — Pretty Effective … although … that’s not to say that someone didn’t start throwing themselves around because THEY wanted to sweep out the garage. Truth.

The Luck of the Draw was the catalyst for creating the “Job Jar” Household Chore System and it really works!

The “Job Jar” household chore system has been used as curriculum for college level child development courses & corporate Organizational Effectiveness Training seminars & can be adapted for ages toddler and up.

SIDEBAR: I’m always asked how I came up with all of the jobs … honestly … they represent every single one of the chores that *I was trying to conquer myself. *This is no time to judge me. I was a classic enabler. My daughter didn’t even dress herself until she was 6.

With the very first Job Jar system in hand, I gathered the family around the table and shared the list of chores for the week. The kid’s found the Job Cards and dropped them into the Job Jar.

ANOTHER SIDEBAR: I was more than a little surprised at how excited the kids were during the process and I was even more blown away, watching them take immediate ownership of their CHORE CHARTS and REWARD CENTERS.

We discussed allowance, rewards and the points that it would take for them to earn those fabulous prizes. They feverishly jotted it down on their Reward Centers.

Everyone had a chance, including my husband to pick a couple “Job Cards” out of the “Job Jar.” The Job Card jobs were added everyone’s chore chart under Weekly Chores. Daily Chores, are just that, Daily Chores:)

That first week I watched my family banish dust bunnies, feed the dogs, clean out the garage, rake leaves, jackets hung, backpacks put away, homework finished, teeth brushed, beds made and the kitchen sink never looked so good.

Committed to 21 days and after that the chores started to become a habit … what more could a mother ask for? Sure we went backwards a few times … but hey … something is better than nothing!

BE GENTLE, PATIENT & MOST OF ALL … CONSISTENT: Rewarding behavior, while teaching the habit of becoming responsible, is the 2ND most important part of this learning process.

The 1ST is trying to remember that no one cleans like you do, so lighten up and see the good in their work.

You can do this!

Thank you for stopping by!

The “Job Jar” was created after taking note of the household chores that I was conquering by my own working mother self.

Sick of yelling people!

The kids were 5, 11 and the husband, when I created the “Job Jar” household chore system & resolution center and it worked!

The “Job Jar” has been used as curriculum for college level child development courses and corporate Organizational Effectiveness Training seminars and can be adapted from toddler to adult.

What i have learned through all of this is ...

Rewarding behavior, while teaching the habit of becoming responsible, is the second most important part of this learning process.

The first is trying to remember that no one cleans like you do!

Lighten up and see the good in the work.
