In our home each kid is responsible for 5 daily tasks. I let them help me pick the tasks because they like being involved in the process. Not only will you get some help around the house, but oddly enough your kids will be happier after they have done some work.
Each child has a laminated chart they can write on with a dry-erase marker. It’s important to show when the task has been completed. And after a successful week they are rewarded with a treat like ice cream. And after a month of completing their daily tasks we like to take a trip to the beach.
