One of the components of responsibility is having more that is expected of you and following through. I had great intentions with our chore chart, but I must admit that I haven’t been as diligent in the follow through. Best intentions. I really should get more on top of that. We’re going to take baby steps this week, and today I have given them one chore they are responsible for this week. We brainstormed a few things they might be able to do around the house, and then they chose. I loved to see Abigail following through on being the hero by telling Kenzie she could choose first. Kenzie chose emptying the dishwasher. Abigail being in charge of shoes (my kids love to leave their shoes all over the house). She will need to pick up all shoes and keep the shoe cubbies in the front closet organized. They have a sticker chart and will receive a prize if their responsibilities get completed every day this week.
