Reply to How to get teens to do their chores and pull some weight around the house?

Growing up, my family had weekly chores. We had to dust, vacuum, mop, scrub the bathrooms, and clean the kitchen. This happened every Saturday morning. You want to go somewhere? Then you better get the chores done because we weren't allowed to touch our phones, computers, or go anywhere without cleaning the house first. Saturday's are a great day for chores because it's a big day for wanting to hang out with friends and if you don't work Saturdays it is much easier to monitor. You shouldn't have to make sure lists are checked off, etc.
