How To Ground The Kids And Clean The House Without Lifting A Finger

Whoever came up with the idea that grounding kids meant sending them to their rooms clearly wasn't thinking big.

Lynette, a mom whose blog typically chronicles her incredible adventures in cake making, posted a photo of what looks to be a chore chart. But instead of monetary incentives, the kids must earn 500 points to get "ungrounded." Chores such as "load dishwater" and "cook dinner" can earn them anywhere from 10 to 100 points.


Lynette wrote on her blog that she made the chart after she grounded her kids for being late to school and realized she could use their punishment to her advantage. And it seems to be successful:

This worked out better than I could have ever imagined! My oldest son got right to work and earned his 500 points in one day. The other two are getting closer and working hard too! We had a nice dinner last night prepared by my son.

For 100 points, we suspect she'd have to mediate fights over who gets to do the laundry. Good job, mom.
