Shared Chore Technique

If your day starts with something like, “Mum, help - he won’t get out of my room”, chances are you’ve got a couple of children who sometimes find it hard to get along. As seen on the show, the Shared Chore Technique aims to discourage sibling rivalry by showing the kids they can get along together (sometimes!).

The Shared Chore Technique

Like the Shared Play Technique, the aim here is to discourage sibling rivalry by encouraging children to work as a team with their brothers and sisters. In completing a joint chore without squabbling or fighting, they are learning to communicate on another level. You’re also giving your children some responsibility within the household, and you get to check one more chore off your list!
