Get control of chores once and for all - without becoming the household nag.
At Chorebuster.net you list the chores, rate them on degree of desirability/objectionableness, and the names of the people among whom chores are to be distributed.
Chorebuster.net then generates a weekly chart, with chores fairly distributed, that looks something like this:
You can have the chart emailed to you, and you can also print it out.
Since the software assigns the chores based on the parameters you feed it, little Johnny can't get mad at you when it's his turn to clean the toilet!
PSYCHOLOGICAL TIP: The key factor in getting kids to do their chores in not the system that you use, but in getting everyone committed to the system. One way to get such commitment is to involve all family members in deciding which chores need to be done, and in rating the chores in terms of desirability. When people are involved in the planning, they are more committed to the outcome.
Some parents pay kids to do chores. This is not a good idea. First of all, it leaves room for kids to refuse to do their tasks and forgo the money. Second, it undermines the idea that everyone in the family is expected to contribute the maintenance of your home.
