If you have read my blog for any amount of time, you know that I am always changing up the way I manage my children’s responsibilities. Sometimes we have no responsibilities, sometimes we have more. Sometimes I reward them, sometimes I don’t. I find it so hard to be consistent with any system I come up with. And I am becoming ok with that. Kids like change, right?
Recently I decided for the summer I would try daily chores that were done right after breakfast. Our mornings are not rushed so why not start the day off with a straight house? Instead of coming up with some teachery creative way to display this, I just made each of them a list. I drew pictures for Graham’s (no laughing please).
My kids were so into this. They loved checking their items off. Of course Abbey with her bed head had to have a list too. No one got paid in anything more than a hug or a high five and it felt great. I don’t know how long it will last but it worked yesterday and we will try it again tomorrow.
