How to Make Chore Time Successful

Doing chores may not be the most fun activity your family engages in, but it doesn’t have to be the worst thing either. Here are some tips for making the next family chore time better:

  • Cast kids in the role of “helper.” Research has shown that this word in particular motivates kids to want to pitch in.
  • Stay upbeat no matter the complaints, and make your own positive attitude your main concern.
  • Assess the job beforehand with the whole family and make a plan together.
  • Establish expectations for the day so everyone is on the same page.
  • Break the project down into manageable tasks – an important life skill for everyone.
  • Enjoy the camaraderie that comes with working together.
  • Forget about perfection – what’s important is that everyone participates, not that each task is completed to an adult level.
  • Be appreciative of everyone’s hard work.
  • Celebrate your accomplishments with a special treat for the whole family, like fixing ice cream cones or renting a movie.
  • Remember that the big picture of family work time isn’t the project, it’s the work ethic and perseverance being developed.
