Have You Ever Wished Your Kids Will Beg To Do Their Chores?

Have You Ever Wished Your Kids Will Beg To Do Their Chores?

One of the most difficult things for new parents to deal with is how to get their kids to do chores once they get old enough. The last thing most kids want to do it to stop playing and do housework around the house. Unfortunately, if the kids do not want to help out with some of the chores, the parents would be stuck doing all of the work for themselves. A solution to this problem would be to convince the kids that if they were to do the chores you want them to do they would receive a valuable reward. There is “an app for that” called Choremonster.

Make Chores Fun and Challenging For Your Kids

    The Choremonster App for iOS is an app that is only available for iPhone users and can be found on iTunes for easy install. The app is customizable in that you can decide which of the chores fit in with your household. The key to the app is your kids are encouraged to complete the chores that you assign to them in order for them to get a reward.

    The app is designed to be used with kids aged 4-12 and the parent gets to manage the use of the app. They get to decide what types of rewards are given for completing which chore by their kids. Parents are able to be as creative as they want when it comes to picking out the rewards.

    Now Chores Are Just like Games For Them

      The app is filled with dozens of chores that can be selected by you that fit in with your household. Each chore is then assigned a select number of points and as your child completes the chore that amount of points are added to their account.

      Helps to make doing chores fun for kids

      While most kids dread having to do chores that are given to them by their parent as a rule. It is up to the parents to figure out how to get them to want to do them.

      The app is set up so that you get to determine the chores, points, and rewards to be given out for completing a certain chore. You have all of the power to decide which chores are going to be done.

      It Has Made My Parenting Life So Much Easier 

      I was having difficulty with getting my two young kids to do the few easy chores that I needed them to do. They would much rather play their video games and or play outside then do the things around the house that I needed help with. That all changed when I found the Choremonster App and installed it on my iPhone. I got it set up fairly easily and after an, I showed my boys how it worked they seemed to get into it. I would rate it 4.5 stars out of 5.0 stars.

      How to Ask for Help When You Need It Most

      How to Ask for Help When You Need It Most

      Nod your head if you’ve ever had to ask for help at work, at home or anywhere else. Now, nod again if you’ve ever felt shy or silly when doing so.

      I’m sure some of you reading would have nodded twice!

      Whether it’s not knowing the answer to a question in class and looking around to see if your classmates knew, getting stuck on a project at work and needing to get additional input from colleagues, or just being in a new city and needing help with directions, we’ve all been down this road before.

      We may not know what to do, and clearly would benefit with some help, yet we won’t–or are afraid to–ask for help. We either very reluctantly do so eventually, or decide to suffer in silence altogether.

      Why Are We so Afraid of Asking for Help?

      So what stops us from seeking the help that we need? Sometimes it might be that we fear requesting assistance as we don’t want to seem weak, needy or incompetent in front of strangers, our peers or superiors.

      Especially if you’re in a competitive work environment, there is an understandable fear that if you let your guard down, this information about you not knowing will be used against you. If you’re too open about asking for help, people may start associating you as the leech who’s always relying on someone, and you’ll start to appear incapable in front of your peers. And as much as you would like to play a fair and just game, the reality is that not everyone thinks that way. There will be overly aggressive individuals out there who will gladly walk over you to get to the top in their career.

      Not to mention, your reputation is at stake. If word got out that you had to seek help of some form, you’ll feel embarrassed or perhaps insecure. You might feel less confident about your abilities and worry about what others think of you. You’re afraid to attract that kind of attention at work.

      Unfortunately, we all have a natural tendency to judge ourselves harshly–often thinking of situations much worse than they actually are in reality. As a result, we also miss out on a lot of potential knowledge or help. If only we were able to see past all that self imposed negativity! Or, at least learn how to manage such situations in a more confident manner.

      Meet Paul

      I have a friend by the name of Paul who runs his own company. He started at a young age and is already a very successful business man at age 40.

      When I ask Paul to name something he does to stay focused and on track in life, he tells me that he has a life coach. He has regular monthly sessions with a life coach who helps him through different aspects of his life.

      “It almost sounds like a counseling session”, I told Paul.

      He simply replied, “Yes.”, with a smile.

      To Paul, the purpose of having a life coach is to give him perspective and to call out on areas of his life that he may have missed out on or neglected.

      He see’s having a life coach as a benefit to his success, and not as a sign of weakness.

      We’re Seeing It All Wrong

      This got me thinking. Many of us automatically assume that going for counseling, taking self help courses, or seeing a life coach means that something unpleasant has happened or is happening in your life. The word help is regarded as a negative.

      But the truth is, if we can turn “help” around to see it as a positive act, then going for any of the above would actually be an empowering act.

      You need not be in some dire state to seek change. You also don’t have to be at some terrible dead-end or crossroad in life only to seek help. It may just be that you’re wanting to better improve your wellbeing, or to go through some self development to become a better you.

      Everyone goes through periods of change in their lives. Whether it’s naturally occurring, or a ‘forced’ change, it’s always meant to improve our well being, and allow us to become better versions of ourselves. But we can’t always make or go through change alone, and that is completely normal. So we should embrace that fact and know that seeking help from someone or somewhere is a perfectly normal thing to do, and not something to be ashamed of.

      Help Is Not a Form of Weakness 

      In Paul’s case, having a life coach helps give him an extra set of eyes so that he can envision his life and plans much clearer.

      As a busy working professional, he has many responsibilities to attend to alongside being a father and husband. In order not to burn out or lose sight of his goals, Paul’s life coach acts as a reminder and offers him new insights to problems or situations that Paul may find himself in.

      This is applicable to any form of help and not limited to what a life coach can bring to the table. Research has proven that having a support system has many positive benefits, such as higher levels of well-being, better coping skills and a longer and healthier life.

      If this isn’t enough to convince you, even the most successful people like Richard Branson and Warren Buffet require asking for help and have other people advise them.

      Take athletes for an example. Behind every successful athlete, or any athlete for that matter, is a coach. He or she is there to train and guide them on their path to greatness. Coaches have the ability to point out blind spots and play on the athlete’s strengths. The athlete focuses on a current or specific training routine, but the coach already has a bigger plan mapped out and that one training routine that the athlete is focusing on, is but one of many more training routines that will eventually lead to the athlete succeeding and outperforming. Without the coach’s vision to map that out and guide the athlete, the athlete will be training blindly, and not maximising his efforts.

      Seeking Help Is Strength

      By taking an active step in seeking help or advice, you’re actually taking control of your life, and not letting external circumstances (such as what people think) affect how you behave and perform. It is courageous to accept your weaknesses!
