Kids Chores – Get The Kids to Help Keep the House Clean
Comment posted on Kids Chores – How To Get The Kids to Help Keep the House Clean by Michelle Vandepas
My little girl is 6, and I started paying her this year – 25 cents for setting the table, 1.00 for a clean room on Sunday (once a week is good enough for me).
I’m sloppy myself, so I don’t set a good example, I don’t expect a lot, just not to have laundry pike up and piles of stuff on her floor.
There are other chores too, no fussing in the morning gets her an extra $1 a week – or docked pay if she fusses. – On Sunday its payday, and 10% goes for giving, 30% to saving and the rest is hers. So far she’s bought hair bows, candy and trinkets from the dollar store – and given away some change to a homeless man.
We are off to a good start.

Nice to connect with you again after a couple of years – Following Joy is a big step to keeping overwhelm out of our lives .. You might say, wait, I don’t love/have joy for the dishes, but I still need to do them – but the trick is to understand a clean kitchen might bring joy, or the opposite, a dirty kitchen overwhelm which just leads to more overwhelm and Chaos! If having a plan is too overwhelming (even if you did break it down for us) try not having a plan – but just doing the next one thing in front of you to do! My thoughts.
