Getting Kids to Help with Chores

I know people with multiple kids. Some of them don't think chores are for kids. One says it's all women's work (hehe), and getting them to help out is a chore in itself!

I suggested once that a job wheel be made. Each day, the kids spin the wheel, and the chore it lands on is what is on their to do list for that day. Perhaps someone hates dishes, and another hates sweeping. This means that their chances of getting the jobs they don't like that day are slimmer than if they had them assigned.

If you don't want to build a spinning board or use an old game board, just put the chores on a piece of paper, and draw them out of a hat! Either way, you can't come out the bad guy because it's the luck of the spin or the luck of the draw!
