REWARDING KIDS WITH CHORES AROUND YOUR HOUSE.

Great Power Starranty

When you decide to give your children their first chore around the house, there are some basic notes to keep in mind.
First that this is still very new to them. Second that you will need to assign the tasks and also oversee the results.  In other words: walk along with your children through their first set of chores. The mantra is to Help them. Show them. Supervise them.

With the long Independence day weekend coming up, you as a parent will struggle to find activities to fill your kids’ day with fun, while also keeping your household clean. By simply combining the two, turning chores into games and offering small rewards, you can get your kids excited about cleaning and, at the same time, it also helps them learn how to take on more responsibilities.
