Be sure to include a reward system for your children who help you with household chores. Base their allowance on the successful completion of their chores. Assign monetary values to each chore, such as 25 cents to unload the dishwasher, 10 cents to take out the trash, $1.00 to vacuum the floors, etc. Prepare a weekly time sheet for them to complete which lists the chores assigned to them and the monetary value associated with it. This will teach them responsibility, give them an opportunity to earn their allowance, and give you much needed help with household duties without having to nag.
