A Job Chart for Every Family Situation?
September 27th, 2011 - Category: My Job Chart
As we approached the blog today, the question came up: are these posts (and the free service MyJobChart provides) valuable for every family? After all, not every family is the same. In fact, we were recently given a link to a great “statistics” blog entry from Medicalbillingandcoding.org.
This blog post talks about the diversity of families, and what has changed over the years. Some of the things we found interesting included:
-The increase in the number of stay-at-home dads
-The average amount of time working women still spend taking care of the house
-The number of single parent families
This information was interesting because more than ever it supports the need for a chore chart. But it also helped us realize:
Generic chore charts do not work for most families. You’ve got to find a chore chart that works for you. Whether you’re a single mother who already has a full schedule, or you have a two parent family with one parent at home, your needs are unique. Printing off a pre-determined chore chart is very rarely going to fit your lifestyle. That’s one of the great things about MyJobChart.com…it can be easily changed and adapted to meet your child’s abilities, skills, and how much help you need from them.
You need a chore chart that is easy to create and change. The number of working women has increased significantly over the last few years. Parents are busier and trying to create and manage a chore chart from scratch can be time consuming. With Myjobchart.com, putting your chore chart together and managing your child’s rewards (or lack thereof) is a piece of cake.
You need the ability to check in anytime, anywhere. With more parents at work, keeping an eye on your children takes more time and more effort. With a job chart that you can check from any computer, you can take a break at work and check up on your child’s efforts. Plus, Myjobchart.com means you never lose your chart or end up crossing out or adding new chores.
Can you have a blog post (and, of course, a product) that successfully meets the needs of every type of family? We sure think so. If you haven’t tried Myjobchart.com yet, you really need to take some time and check it out. For every type of family, it’s the perfect solution for guiding your family and helping them become more responsible.
