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.

      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.

      What Is Creativity? We All Have It, and Need It

      What Is Creativity? We All Have It, and Need It

      Do you think of yourself as a creative person? Do you play the drums or do watercolor paintings? Perhaps compose songs or direct plays? Can you even relate to any of these so called ‘creative’ experiences? Growing up, did you ever have that ‘artistic’ sibling or friend who excelled in drawing, playing instruments or literature? And you maybe wondered why you can’t even compose a birthday card greeting–or that drawing stick figures is the furthest you’ll ever get to drawing a family portrait. Many people have this common assumption that creativity is an inborn talent; only a special group of people are inherently creative, and everyone else just unfortunately does not have that special ability. You either have that creative flair or instinct, or you don’t. But, this is far from the truth! So what is creativity?

      Can I Be Creative?

      The fact is, that everyone has an innate creative ability. Despite what most people may think, creativity is a skill that everyone can learn and hone on. It’s a skill with huge leverage that allows you to generate enormous amounts of value from relatively little input. How is that so? You’ll have to start by expanding your definition of creativity. Ironically, you have to be creative and ‘think out of the box’ with the definition! Creativity at its heart, is being able to see things in a way that others cannot. It’s a skill that helps you find new perspectives to create new possibilities and solutions to different problems. So, if you encounter different challenges and problems that need solving on a regular basis, then creativity is an invaluable skill to have.Let’s say, for example, that you work in sales. Having creativity will help you to look for new ways to approach and reach out to potential customers. Or perhaps you’re a teacher. In this role you have to constantly look for new ways to deliver your message and educate your students.

      How Creativity Works

      Let me break another misconception about creativity, which is that it’s only used to create completely “new” or “original” things. Again, this is far from the truth. Because nothing is ever completely new or original. Everything, including works of art, doesn’t come from nothing. Everything derives from some sort of inspiration. That means that creativity works by connecting things together in order to derive new meaning or value.From this perspective, you can see a lot of creativity in action. In technology, Apple combines traditional computers with design and aesthetics to create new ways to use digital products. In music, a musician may be inspired by various styles of music, instruments and rhythms to create an entirely new type of song. All of these examples are about connecting different ideas, finding common ground amongst the differences, and creating a completely new idea out of them.

      What Really Is Creativity?

      Creativity Needs an Intention

      Another misconception about the creative process is that you can just be in a general “creative” state. Real creativity isn’t about coming up with “eureka!” moments for random ideas. Instead, to be truly creative, you need to have a direction. You have to ask yourself this question: “What problem am I trying to solve?” Only by knowing the answer to this question can you start flexing your creativity muscles. Often times, the idea of creativity is associated with the ‘Right’ brain, with intuition and imagination. Hence a lot of focus is placed on the ‘Right’ brain when it comes to creativity. But, to get the most out of creativity, you need to utilize both sides of your brain–Right and Left–which means using the analytical and logical part of your brain, too. This may sound surprising to you, but creativity has a lot to do with problem solving. And, problem solving inherently involves logic and analysis. So instead of throwing out the ‘Left’ brain, full creativity needs them to work in unison. For example, when you’re looking for new ideas, your ‘Left’ brain will guide you to a place of focus, which is based on your objective behind the ideas you’re searching for. The ‘Right’ brain then guides you to gather and explore based on your current focus. And when you decide to try out these new ideas, your ‘Right’ brain will give you novel solutions outside of the ones you already know. Your ‘Left’ brain then helps you evaluate and tune the solutions to work better in practice. So, logic and creativity actually work hand in hand, and not one at the expense of the other.

      Creativity Is a Skill

      At the end of the day, creativity is a skill. It’s not some innate or natural born talent that some have over others. What this means is that creativity and innovation can be practiced and improved upon systematically.A skill can be learned and practiced by applying your strongest learning styles. Want to know what your learning style is? Try this test. A skill can be measured and improved through a Feedback Loop, and can be continuously upgraded over time by regular practice. Through regular practice, your creativity goes through different stages of proficiency. This means that you can become more and more creative! If you never thought that creativity was relevant to you, or that you don’t have a knack for being creative… think again! You can use creativity in any aspect of your life. In fact you should use it, as it will allow you to to break through your usual loop, get you out of your comfort zone, and inspire you to grow and try new things. Creativity will definitely give you an edge when you’re trying to solve a problem or come up with new solutions.
