A great way to teach the difference between chores and expectations.
I will reward with a few extra minutes on His kindle or staying up later.
If they did their assigned chores all week they got the full amount. If it wasn't done or done properly it got deducted.
Allowances definitely is a way to get children to do their chores for sure! #CleaningAsAFamily
If they didn't do chores and lost allowance, they also lost parties and dances.
Absolutely. You have to ration their pay. It shows them your stance and they realize they need to be more responsible/productive. I liked my money, so I did my chores! #CleaningAsAFamily
Something really fun at end of week...if nothing gets done and we have to do it all then we don't do something really fun.
No work....no fun activities. Ok maybe not exactly that harsh from my U9 crew but pretty darn close. There is a certain amount of chores we expect for being part of the family. Everyone does chores in the house. Some more that others (mommy) and some less ( 3 year old)
Special snacks and extended bedtime work wonders with my kids.
I'm the one that needs motivating. I finally gave up and hired a house cleaner. That helped a bunch
I'm beyond having kids - (granny now) but my husband pretty much qualifies as a kid and I have found it useful to bribe him with food/meals to get him to help clean up. The way to a man's heart is still through his stomach. lol
Mine are little (4 years and 2 years) and haven't started asking for a reward necessarily. We give lots of praise for helping out with their "job" and emphasize how important their contribution to keeping the house running. I don't know if we'll move to a reward system as they get older - I guess it'll depend on them!
@Blogging Mom of 4 has a creative way to motivate her kids! Check out her "Kids, Chores and Using the Marble Jar" post.
We also try to use positive reinforcement and praise as the reward. My son responds to that so well and is so excited to hear that he did a great job wiping down the counters or doing this or that!
Need a new (and fun) way to assign chores? See how @Jen from the blog Four Marrs One Venus does it in her house with the "Chore Cootie Catcher".
I motivate them with an allowance and if they don't complete their chores they don't get one.
haha--isn't that the truth!
part family duties and others that they do beyond have a money amount assigned them, but they cannot skip their family duty chores to et to the money ones....1st things 1st!
Rewards or bribes!!!
