Creative Consequences

The best way to reward and teach people of any age is creative consequences. If you have not tried it I would highly recommend you get thinking about it today! It is a win – win for everyone involved.  I have attempted to do some creative consequences here and that has not been successful. I decided to share some that work at home.

Everyone in my home is medically retired expect me. So they end up doing some of the chores. I love it when they don’t complain and just help out a little.

At bottom of the laundry hamper I wrapped up a box of treats. There was a note that read “Thanks for helping out. Enjoy your treats.” 

I didn’t ask them to do it. They didn’t have to thank me. The consequence was a reward for all.

  1. Around here, it is just the three of us. Our daughter works, so she does next to no chores, understandably. Up until a couple of months ago, my wife did most of the chores, since I was trying to make money by writing. I take care of the animals, the yard, etc, and a little more than half the cooking. Starting about 2 months ago, my wife decided that she didn’t want to do housework, so rather than just letting it go, I started doing the dishes, laundry, sweeping, mopping, vacuuming, steam cleaning, dusting, nearly all of the cooking, etc, as well as the other stuff I was doing already, while she works on her crafts or volunteers time down at the church. Eventually, she will start doing her share again. I don’t complain since I’d be doing all of that anyway if I was single, so I’m really not losing anything.
