Did you or do you plan on making your child(ren) do chores? Even simple ones such as straighten up toys, put plate in sink? What kind of chores do your children do? How many per day? What are the consequences of undone chores? What is the reward given for completing chores? I just made up daily chores for my girls ages 11,9 & 8. Their chores consist of loading/unloading dishwasher, vacuum bedroom/hallway, mop/sweep kitchen, clean counters, fold laundry and put it away. Take out garbage on garbage night. Clean bathroom (just mop/pick up dirty laundry) and bring laundry downstairs to be washed. Some of these are NOT done every day. Clean bedroom and dishwasher and bring down dirty laundry are the ones to be done everyday. They are not allowed to play Xbox, watch tv or play outside until it is done and now that school is in they must do homework as well. At the end of the week they will be allowed to pick a redbox movie or some kind of other special prize. Money, item of choosing from dollar tree, etc. we are not rich and my children appreciate any type of special reward they are given
ETA- the majority of you are saying picking up toys and cleaning the bedroom are not chores, so with that said, what are the chores you give that are rewarded? My kids know keeping a clean room is necessary but sometimes I get the complaining of I don't want to or they blame each other for messing it (2 share a room, my oldest has her own room but my youngest sometimes will sleep in my oldest's room) we also have a rule of no toys in the living room.
