What is the Workstars Program?
It is a “Family Economy” system that teaches children:
1) How to work
2) How to earn and save money
3) How to be a self-starter
4) They are not “entitled” to certain items and privileges
5) How to not whine and be happy to do chores & responsibilities
And much more…
Isn’t this just another chore chart?
No this is more than a chore chart, it is a system that will teach you to teach your children to do chores and responsibilities on their own. If done properly, it will eliminate their whining (well most of it…), your nagging (for the most part…) and help instill the importance of work in your child’s character.
Why is this free?
There are several other “chore chart systems” out there that are excellent. We have used several in our family. Most of them have some type of materials or large wall hanging to purchase. These chore chart systems can cost hundreds of dollars. This has discouraged us and many others from trying the system. We have developed our system in a digital format (pdf) for you to easily print out and use week after week. All resources and printables on our site are free.
What will I receive?
You will receive the Workstars System Chart and instructions. The instructions are very important because how you implement the program will depend on whether or not it is a success. The Workstar Program will just be “another chore chart” unless you read the instructions and implement the program correctly. Here’s a snippet of the packet:
Will this work for my older children?
Absolutely it will work with older children. It may take a little longer to break some old habits, but we have seen families have great success with teens using the Workstars Program.
