Raise your hand if you have an active toddler? Now raise your hand if your toddler thinks they can do everything on their own without any help (i.e. cut their own hair and boil their own mac&cheese?). If this sounds all too familiar, God bless you – I am right there with you Mommies & Daddies. My Daisy is quite the active 3 year old who is so “capable” that it’s a little bit unnerving. (I mean seriously, her self cut bangs are so even – It’s hard to be upset!) I am constantly proud of her, but she needs a tad bit of direction. I recently put together a short chore list for her and it was a huge hit! Oh my goodness, she loves it! I had to print extra copies to put one by her bed and one in the fridge. She gets so excited. She asks me when she can start her chores! Half the chores she completes in the morning and the other half she finishes after dinner. This girl gets the biggest smile on her face after she checks off a task. I didn’t realize how much she needed that sense of accomplishment. She floats on a cloud of confidence when her chore list is all complete. A kid who is proud of themselves is emotionally boosted. I wanted to share this with everyone because it was a crazy amazing success with my family. It can most definitely be used for older children. I hope this can bring some fun routine to your home!
