Review and Giveaway #2 – 102030Go!

102030Go! Kid Chore Chart and Accountability System

This week, a very blessed subscriber will win the 102030Go! Family Kit. It’s a full system at a $30 value!

Do you need some consistency in your home routine? Do your kids shirk off their daily chores? Are you running out of ideas on how to motivate them? Then the 102030Go! system is for you!

What do the numbers 10, 20 and 30 stand for?

  • 10 = 10 minutes of Prayer and personal time with God
  • 20 = 20 minutes of Independent Reading
  • 30 = 30 minutes of Chores

The kit includes a magnetic prayer request chart to be hung for the family to see; charts for each child’s chores to be displayed; stickers with already printed chore suggestions, weekly checklist cards for each child and more!

The system is designed to train your children to be responsible for their daily work and accountable to you for their consequences or rewards.

I can’t tell you important this is to me as both a parent and a public school teacher. It is VITAL that kids receive immediate consequences for negative behavior just as they would receive immediate rewards for positive behavior. I have too many students in my classes who know nothing of consequences and are drunk on empty rewards. I wish I could hand this system out to each and every one of my students’ parents and not just on winner on this blog.

Since my girls are only 26 months and 11 months, I had to test this product on my friend’s children, who are 8 and 10 years old. I imagine one could start younger — and for me, the younger the better! — perhaps by age 3 or 4 providing that you adjust your expectations of what a younger child can do. My 26 month old is expected to pick up her toys and she helps me put away the laundry, but she can not do anywhere near 30 minutes of chores. Use your judgment.

My friend, Manni, graciously volunteered her son (8) and daughter (10) for this project. And I want to applaud them for even trying to stick with it as we were weathering Hurricane Sandy since they live in an evacuation area!

Of the two children, the older sister is a self-motivator, while the younger brother needs more prodding. The rewards seemed to provide much of the incentive needed to get him going, while the older seemed to simply enjoy the whole process. The cards provided food for thought for the kids, as well as gave mom and dad some conversation starters for their mealtime talks. My friend admits that the hardest part was keeping HERSELF consistent with using the system. The children never forgot about it and were eager to ‘play along.’ So, note to moms and dads – stay consistent with sharing the thoughts on the cards as well as handing out rewards and consequences otherwise you could unwittingly undermine your own hard work! 😛

Overall, the experience was positive and I know you’ll have a positive experience, too!

  1. Adrianne B says

    I have a child. I haven’t used anything like this before, but I hope this would provide some incentive for good behavior, following directions, and listening!

  2. Stephanie says

    I do have kids and I ahve tried to make my own chore charts! It would be nice to have something as organized as these are! stef4916@

  3. says

    I have two kids, a 2 yr old and a 5 yr old. I’ve tried a picture-based “schedule” for my daughter, but it didn’t work very well, because there were too many days where we had to change the schedule because of doctor’s appts or whatnot for my 2-yr old.

  4. Donna S says

    I have 3 children, 8,7,3. I have tried the Dave Ramsey Chore chart kit with books with meaning behind it. Purchased it at an expensive price, hoping that I would stick to it. Nothing, or any type of system sticks with my kids too long. They do their chores, no fights about it. It’s the meaning of learning the “value of work” is what I’m trying to achieve. Hopefully, I can conquer that one day!

  5. nichol tone says

    I have 3 kids and desperately need an orginizational chart. Have neber used one begore

  6. says

    I have two sons at home, 10 and 14. I have never used a system like this before. I usually write their chores on a list to do. This sounds like it would make doing chores more fun.

  7. Stephanie G says

    I am a homeschooling mom of 4. This would be dream come true :) I did use one of these growing up, but it was made by my mother. Thanks for this chance!

  8. Bud L says

    I have a son, I have not tried anything in the past but just got my sons 1st report card and he got the lowest score on organization. We need this bad!

  9. Jenel Meier says

    No kids yet, but I plan to gift if to my mother-in-law who has 6, including a 6 and 8 years old.

  10. says

    My girls are pretty little still, so I feel like I have the chance to start things off right. Already, my two-year-old likes to help set the table and do dishes, so we’re in the right direction!

  11. Sarah Z says

    I have 3 kids: 2, 3, and 10. I would love an organized system for me to streamline discipline in our house!

  12. Corey Olomon says

    I have three kids (13, 10, and 7). I’ve tried home-made chore charts but I need to be more consistent

  13. Holly Spence says

    I have three children Ages 2,3 and 6. I have used a chore chart before but I’m hoping to help with routine if I win this :-)

  14. Melinda T says

    I have two girls, ages 2 and 7. We did a chore chart with our oldest, but didn’t stick to it after couple of weeks. I need something that will be easy to do and enforce.

  15. Blessie Nelson says

    I hope to teach the kids with this system about Godly accountability in every area of their lives as they grow

  16. Christina Anne says

    I’m trying to win this for my niece…she has been looking for a chore system for her kids.
    I don’t have kids.

  17. Aimee J says

    I have two kids. We’ve tried several chore charts and accountability programs. I need something we can all stick with!

  18. Emi says

    Do you have children? yes Have you used kid organization programs before? no What do you hope to gain from using 102030Go!’s Starter Kit? can I use this on my husband? everyone things everything is not their responsiblity in our house.

  19. Maxine Rose says

    I have 3 children ages 6,7,and 9. We currently use reading charts and have tried chore charts in the past but can never stick with them. I love how this incorporates prayer, reading and chores. I’d love to give it a try!

  20. says

    I have 3 children all grown up now and I would give this to my Godchild who has 2 children now. I love him he is a great person and so is his wife. I would like to help them raise their two toddlers with this program. I know it is hard raising children and the religious way is the way to go. So thanks for the giveaway and happy holidays to all.
