I love to motivate our kids to do chores. I currently use my chore basket as a fun way to have our kids helping with chores, without having to worry about a chore chart. The kids have their age-appropriate chores
25 manners for kids. I am surprised by the lack of manners these days! When I was growing up, it was an atrocity if you did not use your manners. I am thankful my children were taught these very manners, because my parents instilled them in me as well.
So going to institute this 'Clean your room' check list for kids! Laminate and use a dry erase marker. =) No more checking and rechecking - "Is my room clean yet, Mom?" Don't call me until the checklist is complete :)
