Home Refresh: Ideas To Encourage Your Kids To Do Chores

Mom and daughter doing laundry together.

With all the craziness of the holidays, it's easy to let things slide around the house, but it's time to get back to your routines. However, getting the kids back into the groove of keeping their bedrooms neat and picking up around the house might be a challenge. Here are 6 ideas to encourage your kids to do chores.


  • Teamwork

    Kids grow up with guidance on putting toys away, but getting them to think beyond the box is a little bit different. They learn by watching, so set an example for them by doing chores as a family so they can see how the kids' room furniture gets clean or the trash gets taken out. Working together gives you an opportunity for a bonding as well as teaching your kids how you expect things to be done.

  • Pattern Recognition

    Make chore time a set time. Slip it in as part of their after school activities. It might be tough in the beginning to create a habit for the first couple weeks, but it'll become a routine and they won't need a reminder to get things done. To reinforce the habit, set an example and make chores the first thing you do when you get home from work.

  • Tools Of The Trade

    Checklists and charts help kids visualize what they need to do and when. Seeing all of their tasks laid out helps them manage what needs to be done. This gives you the opportunity to be very clear about what "clean" means to you. Additionally, letting them tick off chores on the list or chart gives them a sense of accomplishment.


Perks & Penalties

Offering incentives for completing chores works well, but you have to be careful about how the rewards (and punishments) are presented. You don't want to bribe them, so you need to pre-set your rewards so that it's ongoing -- like getting a weekly allowance or getting new sports gear if all the chores are completed. When doling out punishments, try to steer clear of threats -- make your messaging positive. For instance, say "When your room is clean, you can play outside" rather than "You don't get to play outside if you don't clean your room." You want to keep the tasks as non-confrontational as possible.

Member Enlistment

Let your kids volunteer for jobs that need to be done around the house. If there are chores that brings one child joy and frustrate another, let them take the ones they like -- cleaning is much more efficient when you like what you're doing. But, inevitably, there are chores no one likes to do -- let them draw for those.

Exchange Rate

Getting everything done on time isn't always possible -- play dates come up, homework can be overwhelming or sporting events get in the way. When these things arise, don't let your kids off the hook, rather let them trade chores with siblings (and you) for something more manageable at that moment. Not only will all the chores get done, but it also introduces them to the art of negotiation.
