Positive Parenting FAQs

Q. How do I get my kids to do their chores?

Posted on May 8, 2009 at 12:58 AM

A.  Natural, real life consequences. The choice is to do/ finish the task or if the child does not do it and the parent has to do it, then not only does the child not get paid their allowance, but the child pays the parent for doing it. Other choices for consequences may be no TV, games, friends, or something of the sort. Grounding time varies based on age and gravity of situation.
