Set the Timer for 15 Minutes

Are you tired of nagging your kids to do their chores? Use a kitchen timer, instead. Say, "We're all going to do our chores now," and set the timer for 15 minutes. Increase your kids’ motivation by doing some chores of your own. Also, make sure that your kids know — before you start the timer — what jobs they're responsible for completing.
