Give your tween more responsibilities, and more independence, with this printable chart of chores for tweens plus tips for cleaning products, like a mop from our sponsor O-Cedar, that tweens will love to use.
My daughter turned 11 this month and I feel like we just made a significant turn towards adulthood. Of course, we have to get through the tween and teen years first. But there was a definite shift in status on her 11th birthday.
Can you see the sass?? HA! The tween years promise to be challenging, but I'm also looking forward to helping her grow in to a responsible adult.
One of our biggest issues with our new tween has been household responsibilities and money. She wants to earn money by doing chores around the house. So we recently came up with a list of household chores she can do to earn money. She still has chores she has to do as a part of being in our family. But we decided to pay her for chores that need to be done more on a weekly basis and that benefit everyone in the family.
One thing we've learned about our tween is that she really doesn't like being told what to do. She would rather be given a list to check off on her own terms. We created a printable list of “jobs” that she can do each week along with how much she gets paid for each job. It's up to her to complete them but we have to check them to make sure they are done correctly.
The free printable is available at the bottom of the post.
