Children's chore & motivation plans
I can help you come up with a system to get your children motivated and taking part in the household.
An easy to follow laminated checklist can make all the difference in how children perceive their expectations. When we break big tasks down into single steps, they tend to feel more rewarding and less daunting for any of us. It's also easier to meet expectations when they're laid out in easy to understand ways.
I'm not going to lie to you and make it sound like it's going to be a cake walk right off the bat, because most kids that aren't helping are pretty content with lounging (and adults, let's be real). There will be some grumbling with kids used to having free access to electronics.
This does take including limits and a privilege system.
Don't worry, I can help come up with that too!
It's often easier to use this type of system if there are siblings, other children, or a supportive adult who is on board with receiving proximal praise for doing what's desired of the target child(ren) when they do. It's not mandatory, just quicker and more effective.
I can talk you through the process to do it all on your own for just my simba price. If charts need me to laminate and the markers added to them, I will need to be paid to create and ship them.
The construction process is pretty straight forward and it would be quicker if you have time, motivation and willingness to build it yourself, but I am open to doing the work if that is more practical. I'm not very fast with what all I have going on in my life, so it could easily be over a month before I'd have it together and out to you. I'd rather feed you ideas to print from your home computer so you can get started THIS week!
Training & Qualifications
I'm a mother of 6, two who have special needs. Five of my kids are still home. I have 9 years of experience as a "parent educator" from home based learning with all of them at various points, all of them last year and the 5 here this year. They get along like friends, and sometimes tutors for one another.
Availability & Preferences
Most days I am available between 3-4pm, 6-8pm, and sometimes 10-11pm
