How to delegate your to-do list to your kids.
[Click to Listen to Podcast]
In today’s conversation, we’re going to talk about delegating your to-do list to your kids. If we want to raise our kids to be thriving adults, then we will need to start teaching them key responsibilities. And chores can be a perfect way to do it.
Don’t expect perfection, it’s “practice makes perfect”
Remember to do the following when you teach your children to do chores:
- What exactly does the chore entail
- Demonstrate how to do it
- The proper steps to follow
- How to tell when the chore is done
Remind them (and yourself) that they won’t be good at it the first time, but as they keep doing it they’ll get better with practice.
In Conclusion: Final Message
So, when you’re successful in delegating and teaching your kids key responsibilities they can do for themselves, not only are you helping them to thrive and be independent adults but, you are also actually taking tasks off of your own to do list!!
