I have one ds who cheerfully helps with any household task.

The others? Not so much. Grumbling. Excuses. Dragging of feet.


I make them do things, anyway, but I'd like to do something tangible for this ds to show that his helpfulness is appreciated.


We do not have an allowance system. We cover all the dc's needs and occasional wants. The older ones have outside opportunities to earn money for extra things.


What would you do for an 11 yo who consistently cooperates?


I know the others need negative consequences for their self-centeredness. I'd like them all to see that their db's quick and cheerful compliance pleases me.
