I have two teens and two young school aged kids, I have slacked on chores for a while and now we are getting back in the swing of things around the house. I know that the fights and things are bound to happen with any change I am determined to make this work this time I usually try then they fight and say to myself fine ill just do it. I know I am not doing them or myself any favors doing everything for them.
Anywhos, I am in the process of making the chart, getting kinda stuck since they are different ages they can do different levels of the same job. I am thinking of they are changed daily, then one of the little ones one day and one of the older two the next the jobs will be getting done right on those days. Has anyone tried something like this? I did think about having them partner up on these but figured the fighting may be worse if I do.
So any advice on this or other advice on getting them going on chores and sticking with it would be greatly appreciated.
