What are some ways to get my 6 year old to do her chores?

Have you tried the a reward chart.. like if she earns so many points then maybe she could pick some where to go or some thing to do. Such as maybe she would like to spend the day one on one with you. Or she could maybe pick out a small little toy.. but you and always make it that if she does full month of chores she can get the toy she has wanted.. I find that if you make things fun for them then they are more app to do them.. This is a trick i learned with my daycare kids.. i would make a game of cleaning up the toys before the parents would come.. worked well for myself.. Hope that maybe this will help..

I agree, very simple. No TV, no games, no play until chores are done. I've also been known not to take my children to sports, and other extracurricular activities if they make doing chores a battleground. Just don't argue. Lay down the rules, and that's that. My kids also get pocket money at the end of the week, but only if they do the chores without complaining about it.
