If you are a parent, one of your greatest battles is getting your kids to do their chores.
This past weekend my wife took my daughter on a girls trip for her birthday.
It was just me and my sons all weekend long.
Friday, is our designated chores day so I got to monitor all of the fun:).
For the past 2 years my wife has fought the good fight in dealing with all of the complaining, whining, arguing, and other nonsense.
Both of my boys are VERY strong willed and wouldn’t have any privileges until they did their chores.
Sometimes they would piddle for days, choosing not to get their stuff done and have any fun.
Then recently, they decided that they were tired of having their weekends cut short because they were taking so long to do their chores.
Instead they started to embrace getting their chores done timely and well.
They came up with a plan where they would divide their chores up and give the other the chores they didn’t like doing.
Stephon, now does both of their laundry’s, mops the downstairs floor, and cleans half of their room.
Jeremiah, now cleans their bathroom, sweeps the downstairs floor, and cleans the other half of their room.
What once would sometimes take days, took less than an hour to do!!!
The rest of the weekend they enjoyed getting play with friends, watching movies with me, going to the park to play baseball, and playing video games.
They made the choice to embrace the process of responsibility so they could maximize their quality of life by getting to have all the fun they want!!!
