My kids and chores are akin to gazelles and lions. Because lions attack gazelles and eat them for breakfast. except that my kids aren't the lions. My kids are the gazelles, and the chores are what's eating them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
It's frustrating for all involved. (Mostly for me.) So I did something about it.
I got all super organized on them and have a list of daily chores for each child, plus chore wheels for rotating tasks, plus I have listed the rules (which includes mostly stuff like "no whining"), and to top it all off I have a chart to fill in with stickers so that for every 3 days of doing the chores and following the rules they get a prize.
Right now our prizes are Squinkies. Because toyrus.com has them on super mega sale, and you can get a two pack for $.50 if you buy 10.
For anyone who's confused on how to make a rotating chore wheel, here is how I made mine:
And now my kids better start being the lions, because I'm ready for the chores to be devoured already.
