      We are in the process of house shifting and there is a lot of waste and unused stuff to be removed and it’ll be a hectic task for me. I think its really a good idea to get my children included in a little bit of house cleaning. But they won’t help me around the house. I read an article on how to engage children in the junk removal process at home. I think it is really helpful. But I need more advice on this matter? How can I motivate my lazy children to do household chores?

      How old are your children? That makes a big difference in what your expectations and their motivations and abilities are.

      Yes, it definitely depends on their ages!

      make it a game or competition with rewards at the end

      Depending on age, just make it fun to them and entertaining!

      Maybe make some kind of game out of it. That way they are more apt to participate in cleaning.

      It might help to restrict screen time until after chores are done

      Some kind of reward for doing all there chores is usually a good way.

      do house chores in the same time…

      Have you watched the Marie Kondo show on Netflix? I watched it with my family and now all of us are eager to clean out the junk at our house.

      a list of what they are supposed to do, they check it off, then get the “reward” (screen time? whatever works for that age). I think maybe they aren’t so much lazy as they don’t know how/what to do. Getting them to do a little work takes a LOT of work on the parent’s part, and sometimes it feels like it isn’t worth it (but it is!!)
