How many of us mom’s struggle to get our kids to do chores? I’ve tried so many things and I’ve concluded that kids actually like structure, which includes chores. So, I’ve started to give them a simple schedule of chores to do. It’s hard with two and I definitely had fears of parenting two. But every parent makes mistakes.
Sibling rivalry is ramped in our house, so, I put a list of chores in between their bedrooms to remind them and myself. I don’t want to hear them argue about who’s doing or not doing what chore.
But all children are different and respond to different methods of teaching, especially with chores. So, I’ve picked out various methods to get them to do chores. I tried money. I tried bribing. and it ended up that printables, lists and rewards worked for us.
