Balancing Act- Kids and Chores
You have a pretty chore chart with everything checked off at the end of the day/week.
You have a pretty chore chart with nothing checked off at the end of the week and you end up doing all the chores.
Everyone has a job and they all do it.
Everyone has a job but you do them all.
Everyone gets paid their allowance on Saturdays for a great job done all week.
Nobody gets their allowance including you even though you did all the work.
So, see my dilemma. I have tried everything. Chore charts, allowances, losing privileges, all of it. Nothing changes. And the work load just keeps getting bigger. SO here is the part where you all come in.
ANY SUGGESTIONS? TRIED AND TRUE METHODS? ANYTHING?
Because when it comes to balancing chores with my kids- I am an epic failure. So any and all advice would be appreciated.
