DIVIDE AND CONQUER
Give each child a specific task that becomes his responsibility. This will help him know what he needs to do and when—soon he’ll begin taking pride in his achievements. Chores like unloading the dishwasher or sweeping the kitchen floor are easy enough for children under 10 to handle without issue. You can also have them empty the garbage or be responsible for sorting the recyclables. The simplest way to start delegating and sharing in the teamwork is by assigning tasks. Once you do, a chart or calendar as a visual will keep everyone on track. This way, you can keep track of who is doing what and reward accordingly.
