A few years ago, I instituted a chore chart in order to teach my children basic household responsibilities. Chore charts teach responsibility and help encourage kids to set goals. By linking responsibilities to privileges, we can reward responsible behavior and provide consequences when our children do not follow through.
It is important to make learning responsibility fun. Children are motivated when they know they are working toward something and feel like they are doing a good job. Setting up a chore chart is a good reminder for us, as parents, to focus on the positive. Making children accountable for their chores is a great way for them to learn responsibility.
Ever since we received our Shark Rocket Powerhead, the kids have been clamoring to help vacuum. Linus, especially loves how lightweight and easy the Powerhead is to use. I love how convenient it is to transition from hardwood floor to carpeting.
