The Magic Word To Get Your Kids To Do Chores!…can you guess what it is?
A new study found the ONE WORD that will get your kids to do CHORES. And it is . . .
“HELPER.” researchers from Stanford, the University of Washington, and the University of California in San Diego.
They studied 150 kids between three and six, and asked them for help . . . using different
phrases, to see which one was the most effective.
When they said things like, quote, “Some children choose to be helpers” or, quote, “You could be a helper if someone has a job for you,” the kids were more likely to do the chores than when the researchers asked them for help.
The researchers say, quote, “When you use the noun ‘helper’, [it's] a description that points to a child’s basic character and identity, [so] they’re more motivated to prove that it’s true.”
