What do you do when you’ve grown tired of looking around your home and finding it messy, dirty, and disorganized? It’s easy for people to rationalize about not keeping up with their chores.
There’s plenty of work to do in your home and your main task now is to figure out who in your family will do what chores, and when. The trick is in reinforcing the idea of getting routine chores done on a consistent basis.
Some people believe that chores are unnecessary; kids should be kids! Other people believe that chores are absolutely essential to building a responsible adult. The truth is that chores are important, but how they are presented is just as important.
After all, a person might begin the day with the best intentions, only to see plans to complete a list of tasks falling through. In such cases, it pays to examine what you are trying to do, focus on priorities and come up with a more realistic approach to doing what you can in the amount of time available.
