How Do You Organize A Chore Schedule For Kidsv?
To keep the house running smoothly and efficiently, every member of the family should be on the chore team. Picking up after themselves, keeping rooms picked up and beds made are not chores–they’re just part of life. Assign chores based on kids’ age and competence. Make a list of all chores to be divvied up. Separate tasks into three age categories: beginner (preschoolers), intermediate (grade schoolers) and advanced (high schoolers and adults). Assign or allow kids to take turns choosing age-appropriate chores. Beginner tasks include helping set the table and sorting socks; intermediate chores include dishwasher duty and pet care; advanced tasks include cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming and helping with meal preparation. Give adults the leftovers if there are not enough able little bodies in your home. Add more and bigger jobs as kids demonstrate aptitude and competence. Rotate chores so that everyone shares the more odious tasks.
