Chores, chance, choice and a chart develop responsibility

Posted on

To boost responsibility with chores and get your kids to pitch in, write each chore on a slip of paper. If a job has to be done every day, write it six times. Put the slips in a jar. Then make a chart with each child’s name down the side and the days of the week across the top. Have your kids take turns drawing jobs. Let them choose a day to do them and put the chores on the chart. One day a week, don’t assign chores. Just write, “See what you can do to help.”
