What motivates a child to do household chores simply lies on us, parents. We should be able to know what drives him/her to do simple tasks or chores at home, what works best for him/her,and what doesn’t work for your child.
As an experienced parent, the best we could do is to think of different strategies and narrow them down to the ones that will definitely work. Children are all different; there are some that will help you voluntarily while some needs constant or non-stop reminders.

Although all these apps are fun to have, I do try not to keep using apps on phone. I usually try to refrain from spending too much time on mobile apps in front of my child. Just in case she follows my habit of looking at my mobile too frequently and keeps asking to play games on my mobile all the time. Balance is the key! 🙂
