making sure everyone has a turn, it would be unfair to let anyone sit them out. younger kids should only do chores they are capable of doing. scedual were you write everthing down like all the chores and whos turn it id to do them is a good idea, as is putting sticker stars or something similar next to the person who accoplished it. rewarding people who do chores incourages them and light punnishment (nothing too harsh) is a good way to motivate others to do better or start doing chores, when they see others being rewarded they usually start themselves. you can also get the kids to watch the chores you do and incourage them to help,say with washing cothes, ask them to help you by bringing any dirty clothes they have, or with the dishes they could help by passing things to you
Hold a family members meeting, use white boards and markers. And start brain storming all the responsibilities before sharing them to all the members. Let them know your reasons of doing so. Mistakes will be punished, achievements will be rewarded.
Family responsibilities should be shared based on ability, schedule, fairness and in the case of children, based on the need to learn.
Yes I feel children need this, it will help them learn life skills and responsibility.
