Tuesday's Tip

Here is a good tip. (sample list below) Plan your kids chore on a chore list . Post one in the kitchen on the fridge, and have them post one in their room.
This way everyone knows their chore and can keep track of what it is they are to do for the day& week. Make sure to check their work has been done and then mark off the chore on your list in the kitchen.
Also it is a good idea to change chores for your children weekly ,so they aren't stuck with the same chores, and  it doesn't become boring to them . Rotate every week.
Some weeks will have harder jobs and then the next week they can have easier tasks.
