ShuGizmo Review & Giveaway -- ENDED



Although DD is typically a good listener, we have been trying to get her to do her chores without having us asking her daily. At 5 years, we don't expect much from her. But, we do expect her to put away all of her toys (without any help from us) before she goes to bed every night. We expect her to put away her dirty clothes, to put her shoes back to their proper spots after she gets home from school, to put her dishes in the sink after she finishes her meal and so forth.So, when we received the ShuGizmo Merit Chore chart to review, we put it to the test.
We listed a number of things we would like DD to do daily and every time she does it on her own (without us asking), we give her a Gizmo. in addition to her daily chores, we also added things like "Give your brother hugs and kisses," and "Play with your brother," on the list. Although we do not ask her or force to do these things, if she has nice interactions with baby G, we will give her a gizmo to give her positive reinforcement. On a separate sheet of paper, we listed the kind of rewards she could earn once she collected enough Gizmos. For example, if she gets 20 of them, she can trade them in for ice cream trip with daddy. For 50 of them, she gets a pedicure with mommy.

After trying it for a few weeks, I have to say that it is working really well. She is definitely trying to interact with her brother more (even though we took those activities off her list because she was getting gizmos at an amazing speed). She is doing most of her chores without us asking her either. The nice thing about having a list is that she gets positive reinforcement for doing things right. And once she got used to doing her chores, we would take them off the list and add different things that we think she needs to work on.

To buy your own Merit Chore chart, please visit the ShuGizmo website.

Many thanks to ShuGizmo. The company has generously offered a Merit Chore chart as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).
