Kids Can Do Chores (Video)

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!

Great video, and what an awesome idea! I'm going to show this video to my kid and make sure he knows we can post a video, too. I'm betting it will motivate him big time! :)
