My kids, Loki (age 6) and Ander (age 9), explain all about doing the chores in the video at this link.
My favorite part is when the 6 year old rats out Mommy over her "shoe" issue. The issue? I drop them wherever I take them off.
*Make chores routine, so kids feel confident doing them.
*Make chores age-appropriate, but remember that even young kids can do something.
*Make chores a family activity.
*Praise, praise, praise. Let your kids make a video bragging about what they do! (Feel free to share the link to your video in the comments.)
*Give the kids tangible rewards, like electronic time or playtime outside, as soon as the chore is done. (We don't pay for chores and kids who are not cheerfully - or at least not sullenly - helpful don't get rewards.)
Enjoy the video!
