I want our kids to want to help. That’s all there is to it. I want them to do chores WITHOUT nagging them constantly to do them. I don’t want to have to keep up with chore charts. I don’t want to have to remind them every day. These tips will help to give you and your children a more normal routine and positive outlook on everyday chores.
1. Be happy with what they do- don’t expect perfection. You are not perfect and neither are your kids. Set your bar high (a sheet thrown on the bed in a ball is not “making the bed” but don’t expect perfection. If you do, you will have a struggle on your hands for years to come. I use the QuickZip Sheets for this because it literally makes it SO EASY for them! The “fitted part” of the sheet stays on & you just unzip the top part & change it out. I love the waterproof pad, too, to protect the mattress from night-wetting! If you don’t have these QuickZip sheets in your house, I highly recommend them. Seriously- I tell all of my friends about them.
