Family Contributions

To make chores seem like not such a…well, chore, stop calling them that. Instead, they become “family contributions.” Teach your 2-year-old to collect dirty clothes into a basket. Have your 7-year-old water the plants. Give older kids first picks from a list of family needs. Explain that you’re all on the same team working for household success. Be a cheerleader rather than a drill sergeant. When kids pitch in, families grow closer, and it’s inoculation against entitlement.
