Help a Mother Out…

Help a Mother Out…

Hi Friends,

I recently received the message below from a reader and I thought as a community we could offer some constructive ideas on how to teach our children help out around the house.


I am greatly struggling with chores and responsibility with my 3 kids.

My 3 year old son is hot and cold with behavior and attitude so one never knows if he will help or fight.

My 6 year old daughter flat out refuses to clean anything “that’s not my mess” yet won’t even cleanup her own room.

My 9 year old son reluctantly helps me out in picking up the slack.

I am a worn out mom in need of new routines and rewards. What kind of charts, rewards and chores can you offer for a challenging group of kids that tend to walk all over an overwhelmed and exhausted mom. Please help.


 Need help keeping your kids on task? Download these free chore charts for your kids! In addition, I’ve created a Pinterest board full of ideas on making chores fun for all ages.


Plus, leave a positive idea about how you successfully get your kids to help with chores and you could win a copy of my book, 21 Ways to Connect with Your Kids.
