Kids will always need reminders to do chores, but these tips can help:
1. Be a role model. If you don’t clean up after yourself, why should they?
2. Offer useful feedback, but don’t micromanage.
3. Keep the tasks age-appropriate.
4. Don’t badger. When you can, let the natural outcomes unfold. If your son forgets to move their favorite shirt to the dryer, it won’t be ready to wear.
5. Feel free to delay or take away privileges if the job’s not done.
