What’s wrong with calling them chores?
The word “chore” usually makes us think of something we’d rather not do. It’s an unpleasant thing even though as adults you know it’s necessary. Convincing your children to help out can be an incredible burden on top of everything else.
But what if we changed our thoughts about chores? What if we talked about helping out around the house as a family team effort? Chores could become a set of responsibilities that everyone willingly helps out with because ultimately it is a privilege to have a home filled with possessions and the physical ability to take care of it all.
Perfect for parents with children of any age who want to STOP nagging about cleaning up and helping out, this premium guide isn’t just about convincing your children to help around the house.
This guide is all about retraining your thoughts and giving you actionable steps to help your children develop a strong intrinsic sense of personal responsibility from the very beginning.
How to use this guide
This is no ordinary sheet of tips and tricks! We created this guide so parents could finally have one complete resource at their fingertips. No more hopping back online to find another checklist somewhere without any context or support. No more searching for multiple lists for multiple ages.
Start with the road map to see the big-picture idea for developing personal responsibility, then flip to the section for your child’s current age. Come back to the same guide over and over again as your children mature.
It’s never too early to start modeling the behavior you want to see in your children (we give you plenty of ideas). It’s never too late to change your habits and give your teens the opportunity to show just how much they’re capable of (and maybe a reminder of how many more life skills they have to learn!).
