Chores for Kids
Wondering how to get kids to do chores? This is a battle I have fought and lost many times. One thing that has worked for me is introducing age-appropriate chores one at a time and trying to make chores fun! For example, encouraging a toddler to take care of a new baby sibling with simple tasks like handing his mama a diaper or glass of water can give him a sense of being involved and important while introducing the notion of helping others.
How do you foster a spirit of children helping others in your home? What kinds of chores do you dole out? Do you use chore charts for kids? Comment below – this is something I still struggle with, so any advice is welcome!
