We started our fall semester with an organized chore chart.
Some things worked well, and others, not so much.
For example, it wasn’t a good idea to assign Marianne to make the oatmeal every morning. Let’s just say that the early mornings aren’t her best time and everyone was happier when we switched that job to Wilson.
The Jurisdictions dropped off after about two weeks. The idea was that everyone has a small area of the house to pick up and dust in the afternoon. Great idea, but poor execution. Let’s just say that the late afternoons aren’t my best time and everyone was happier when we dropped the Jurisdictions altogether.
Even with our rough spots, the kids really did well with their chores this year. They’re growing in ability and diligence all the time. I’m looking forward to Harvey getting his own row on the chore chart. Then I can just prop my feet up? Right??
