Team approach for your family
Creating your family team takes consistent systems and routines. Team building includes the family meeting where the assignments of “who is doing what” become reality. Today a client shared with me what works for her familiy. It is a system called “I did my chores.” My client assigns chores with points for each of her 4 children. Two kids working together each earn points too! Full instructions include various rewards for points earned, such as staying up 30 minutes late, dessert and more. Why does it work? The kids love it and the parents consistently reinforce this.

I love your post! What worked for us is to have a chore night where we ALL did the weekly chores before dinner. Thirty minutes of teamwork with something good cooking on the stove is really motivating!
