101 Ways to Get Your Kids to Help at Home
By Judy H. Wright

“A positive identity hinges on positive life experiences.” – Judy H. Wright

If those positive experiences can take place in the relative safety and security of the home then so much the better. The more successes a child has, the better he feels about himself and his place in the world. When we teach our children to work, the whole family comes out a winner. The child feels greater self-esteem, independence and sense of belonging. The parents feel relieved of some of the workload, less manipulated and more successful is seeing their child develop life skills.

“I get to unload the silverware now, but when I am 4 years old, and then I get to feed the dog. You have to be pretty responsible when you feed the dog, because they can’t just get cereal if they are hungry.”
– Ridge, age 3

  • Are you children responsible for chores?
  • Do they have to be reminded again and again to take the garbage out?
  • Do you have to reprimand them when they forget?
  • Are they resourceful in solving problems?
  • Do they really know how to clean the living room or are they just rearranging the dust?
  • Are your expectations reasonable?
  • How about recruiting other family members to keep the house and life running smoothly?
  • Does your family rotate chores so every one has an opportunity to learn life skills?
  • What is the difference between a reward and a bribe?

Wow! There “R” a lot of questions and what you really want is answers or solutions? Right?

The most important R is Relationships and the good feelings that come to a family when everyone contributes in the sweat and the sweet. Contrary to what the kids may think, this is really about teaching life skills and team work. Those children who help at home do better in school, music and sports. The ones who have learned to respect people and property are assured of always having a job in the world of work.

“Thanks for teaching us how to see things that have to be done and just doing them. As a manager I am astounded by how many people in the workplace wait to be told what to do.”
– Our adult daughter

This ebook is a compilation of ideas, techniques and methods that have come from not only our house with six children, but also from families in the parenting classes I teach.

Each family is unique in their skills, levels of frustration and expectations. So you will want to use these ideas as springboards for conversations at your house. However, every family is similar in that we all want peace, security, acceptance and acknowledgement of effort.

“I am glad you told us to keep starting over with chores for the kids. It would be so much easier to just do it myself. I have to remind myself that I am training them for the future, not just for today.”
– Maris, mother of two boys

You will be glad that you received this assistance in raising resilient, reliable, respectful and resourceful kids. Some day at a family reunion, as they review their childhoods, they will tell you thanks for teaching them to work at home. I know, because our kids have.

By Judy H. Wright

Across all ages, economic and educational levels, confidence and a belief in what you contribute increases life satisfaction and happiness by 40%. Your attitude about life has a ripple effect on all of those around you. When you are confident about your skills and talents, others will trust you more readily.

“I am amazed how much my focus shifted after doing the goal exercise. Now I see that I was much too general in what I wanted. No wonder I was always frustrated and felt like I had failed once again! I didn’t fail; I just didn’t see where I had succeeded. Thanks for sharing this day with us.”

Home Maintenance – Who does what to make our house a home?
By Judy H. Wright

  • Do you want some help keeping the house clean and maintained?
  • How would you like to have more cooperative kids?
  • How about the “perfection police” who only want it done one way?
  • Does anyone even care or appreciate all the decorating you do for the holidays?

In a survey of 250 children, over 98% honestly felt they should work at home and most felt they were already doing their share if not more! Perception become reality and many of us, adults included, don’t realize that picking up a loaf of bread occasionally does not constitute grocery shopping!

“I don’t mind doing chores as long as I can have music on and do it my way. It really bugs me though when my mom criticizes the way I do things.”
– David, age 13

This little priceless ebook is a compilation from focus groups of parents, grandparents and families who shared what it takes to keep a home running smoothly. The more ideas that were shared in a group setting, the more the eyes were opened to how many activities it takes daily, weekly, monthly and annually.“The focus group was so fun last night. My husband was astounded by how much there is involved in running the house. I think he really thought the underwear fairy washed and folded his boxers and put them in the drawer. Not any more!”
– Janie and Jon, participants in focus group
