102030 Go! Review and Giveaway (Kids New Years Resolution to Parents)

Are you wanting your kids to be a be more helpful in the house? Are you wanting them to be respectful of others, good strong morals, and learn more about God. If you answered yes to any of those questions, read on...

I was contacted a couple of months ago by a company wanting a review of their product 102030 Go!.  What a blessing it has been!  Our family has been so busy the past few months, I was losing my mind and sanity! I knew that this program was going to be helpful but didn't know it would be a life changing event!

I'll be honest and admit that it took me quite some time to actually open the package, our family life has been extremely chaotic plagued with sickness and lots of bad luck! Soon after opening it, I regretted not opening it much sooner! This Christian based program has made our kids be a lot more helpful around the house and in return, they get rewards for their efforts! It's a win-win situation for both parents and kids.  I have three children, Cassandra who is 9, Katherine (Kiki) who is 6, and our baby boy Zachary who is just 9 months old.  Both of my daughters are doing the program.  My husband is totally on board and it makes this so much better! The first day we introduced the program to our girls, we sat down all together at the family table and my husband took leadership.

The concept of 102030 Go! is quite simple to understand.  Your child must do 10 minutes of praying, 20 minutes of reading and 30 minutes of chores (age appropriate).  The kit includes a dry-erase prayer chart, two chores charts, two packs of individual weekly theme card with responsibility tracking, and a instruction booklet.  We put our charts on our refrigerator doors since it is the location where it is the most seen and visible.

If you visit their website, you can actually download the program for FREE!  The nice part of being able to download it for free is that you get to try it before you buy it! I do recommend ordering hard copy of this program, it is worth every penny!

Here's the description of the 102030 Go! program found on their website as it describes it much better then I can:

Whether you’re looking for a how to parent solution, how to raise Christian children, trying to find reward charts or responsibility chart that work, wondering what other parents are using to determine allowance for children, or just looking for a the answer the question “how to pray with children,” 102030GO is for you or a family you love.

***REVIEW*** Here's how the steps have worked out for us so far.  There was an adjustment period for us and we are tweaking it each week.  102030Go is flexible and you can make it "your own", which is what we have done.  The past couple of weeks have been a bit challenging due to sickness and the holidays but we have managed to keep up with it. This program has been very helpful for us in many ways.  Our girls are less reluctant to help, they actually look at their chart each day to see what their "daily chores" are and they will do them at their convenience but it gets done on that day unless they are sick.

Proof that my oldest is enjoying being more helpful around the house. Our entrance carpet now gets vacuumed every other day, it collects the most debris and because of having a baby that practically puts just about everything in his mouth, it is important to vacuum that entry hallway on a regular basis :).

10 - minutes of praying.  We have daily family prayer time and we encourage them to pray by themselves as well. They stop and pray every now and then as the need occurs, there's no "night time" rule on this, praying is done when ever their little hearts feels like it.

20 - minutes of reading.  Since we have a daughter that is only 6 years old and she struggles with reading, we have chosen for our girls to read together.  They read the bible together since they both have their own bible and they can follow along as they each take their turn in reading. Reading time is somewhat supervised since they both struggle in reading, and also they do ask questions from time to time about verses and their meaning.

30-minutes of chores. We have given daily chores to each child that is age appropriate, however we have found out that a few of the chores were a bit too hard for my youngest child so we had to make a few changes. They have had a few sick days and since they are so little, we opted to not make them play "catch up" the following day. Also, we had many visitors the past few weeks, so there was times where some of their chores that they had on their list had already been done the day before by mommy, so we substituted here and there as needed. Otherwise, they are pretty good about doing their chores and they get compensated at the end of the week accordingly.  They don't always do them yet but they are getting better and better with each week that goes by.

Overall, I give this product a 5 stars out of 5! I've already had a couple of family members download the free version of this product and they are looking foreword to implementing it as well ! This program is a blessing and I highly recommend it to ALL!!
