  • How about a sticker chart with a reward at the end of the week?

  • Just tell them to do their chores and lay out the consequences of not doing them. Follow through if they don't do what is expected. They are only not doing them because they know there is no consequence.

  • Get the Love & Logic CD or book called "Didn't I Tell You to Take out the Trash?" It has lots of ideas about dealing with kids and chores. I'm using it and no longer having constant battles with my kids about chores. My house is SO much happier!
