THE KIDS BEDROOMS

A great tip is to build their daily routine into this chart, it helps them understand their responsibilities. Here's a list of the 20 BEST CHORE CHARTS FOR KIDS.

This is the perfect time of year to get the kids in for an annual check up with the doctor, an eye exam, or a trip to the dentist.
