Is it possible to get kids to do their chores without resorting to punishments or bribery? Rebecca Mezzino of Clear Space says you can. She writes that instead of rewarding or punishing them, you should set the exception that these things are done. Set the expectation that cleaning up after yourself and keeping the house tidy is expected, just as it’s expected that you would take a shower on a regular basis or pull back the covers before bed. One example she used was that it’s expected that you change out of your PJs before you go to school.

One thing I’ll add is that I don’t think this will work unless the parent sets the example. If you don’t take care of your own chores daily, then you can’t expect the kids to follow suit.
