How old is he?

What things have you asked him to do?

Often with younger kids it helps to do chores together rather than assigning them to be done alone.

With older kids it often helps if you let them some control, like choosing what they will do and when they will do it (within reasonable guidelines). Although, working together is still good.

I don't believe in paying or rewarding for chores. Many people do, but I want to foster the philosophy that you do a job because it needs to be done (it's the right thing to do)... not because somebody will reward you it.
