Chores... Enforcing Them

Chores might be a great idea but how do you actually get kids to do them?

Love and Logic suggests (Make it Mother's Day All year Round)
  1. Don't pay kids to do them!
  2. Never demand, "do it now!"
  3. Use enforceable statements to provide a reeasonable deadline ("Before your next meal" )
  4. Have a plan in place for if the chores are not done.
  5. Never remind!  Let empathy and consequences do the teaching!
