What do you do?
If there is one thing that I lack it is definitely consistency. Routine and schedules with my kids is hit and miss. One thing I've accidentally started doing is Friday chore day. Yesterday I was trying to be more than just the drill sargent for getting chores done, so I put my non-artistic drawing skills to use and drew pictures of what the boys needed to get done in order to earn a date. Although the pictures helped I still had to verbally motivate and remind them to stay on task. Charlie loves to clean the bathroom - I think it's using the squirt bottle that he loves.
I'm wondering what others do to get kids to do their chores?
