Sometimes children act like chores are the worst thing on the planet. Am I being dramatic? I am admittedly a little dramatic but it does seem like that for some of my kids. I know I could be more methodical at how I assign them new chores. Thankfully, this information on how to teach children new chores in 5 steps can help.
I remember asking my daughter to do the dishes for the first time. She looked terrified as if they were covered in shattered glass or something. I was like, “calm down, child.” It will all be alright, now go do the dishes. It definitely was a shocker for her.
I am sure I could have introduced the dishes to her in a more nurturing and instructive manner. Now I definitely know better. The next cleaning chores I want to introduce are scrubbing windows, bathrooms, and floors. I totally will use these steps to see how it goes.
I also would do well to teach them that it builds responsibility and they are productive members of the family. And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Colossians 3:23
