I learned work ethic by working and humility by being humbled. Here's what I mean. I watched my mom and day each work very hard toward their goals, but I truly learned work ethic when I had to do house cleaning chores every week. Over time, I even learned to like it and appreciate it. I was paid for my work and always had money in my savings account. It felt good and I could buy things that I wanted. I also learned humility as cleaning toilets and taking out trash is not glamorous and can be quite nasty. I learned that excellence in my work at every level strengthened my character. I have my parents to thank for that!
In this episode, I teach you how to get your kids involved and learning work ethic and humility through house cleaning chores. As a professional cleaner for 15 years, I'll share our family's strategy & schedule. First, we teach them how to clean and disinfect. Then we break up the house like a professional house cleaner does and assign chores to each kid based on ability. We use a biweekly cleaning schedule except for the recycling & trash (daily) and bathrooms (weekly).
"Let's get your kids to clean... so you don't have to!"
