Like, chillax, already! Check out Mumsnet's Teens pages for genius tips on parenting your wannabe-grown-up.
So fed up of doing everything and my 2 teenagers doing nothing!!! Am happy to buy one, but really need something visual to put up. I have googled but couldn't really find anything. Thanks!
It would probably be easier to make your own, I'd have thought. That way you can make it specific to the chores that are relevant in your house rather than generic ones. A laminated chart on A4 and some labels should do.
We do rotas. We have two:1) rota for tasks that need doing every day - washing up, cooking, laundry - so a weekly rota with 21 'slots', we choose our own slots on a first-come-first-served basisLooks something like this - --------------------------mon---tue---wed---thu---fri---sat---sunwashing uplaundrycookingwhat are we having?checked ingredients?who's out?2) rota for weekly cleaning - bathroom, kitchen, lounge, hallway/landing/stairs - no choice here, we each do each of the rooms on rotation.Everyone cleans their own rooms.It's worked well for over a year now.
