Chore Chart: Tween Edition
Sleeping till noon. Inhaling their dinner and disappearing into their room. Spending hours chatting, snapchat-ing or listening to music with friends–all without budging from the couch. We know: teenagers and tweens can be less than helpful around the house (an unfortunate side effect of complete preoccupation with their own world)… and it can drive parents crazy.
So if you’re ready for a little help from your tween in keeping the house clean, this chore chart is for you! We’ve taken different age-appropriate tasks and added an element of gaming fun, making the challenge feel familiar to these digital natives: for every level of chore completed, the reward levels up, too. The best part? The reward parents get when their tweens beat the boss level and finish the game: a blissfully cleaner home, and more time to spend together as a family.
A cleaner home = a big win for busy families everywhere. For more tips on cleaning, fun chore charts (check out our wine pairings) or to share your own ideas on motivating teenagers to help out around the house, visit us on Facebook!
