You ask, “How do I get my kid to do chores without having to be on top of them?”
4 years ago I answered that question in a blog that went viral. To me chores are a critical way to develop your child’s moral character, so this question is not about making sure they just pick up their clothes. It is about helping them deeply internalize moral principles they will live by for the rest of their life related to teamwork, work ethic, and discipline.
Children thrive on predictability and structure, and this chore system can go a long way toward ensuring you retain your sanity as your children are back in school and homework piles up.
