Children's chore & motivation plans


20 per session - Virtual OK - Posted Feb 03, 2022

I can help you come up with a system to get your children motivated and taking part in the household.

An easy to follow laminated checklist can make all the difference in how children perceive their expectations. When we break big tasks down into single steps, they tend to feel more rewarding and less daunting for any of us. It's also easier to meet expectations when they're laid out in easy to understand ways.

I'm not going to lie to you and make it sound like it's going to be a cake walk right off the bat, because most kids that aren't helping are pretty content with lounging (and adults, let's be real). There will be some grumbling with kids used to having free access to electronics.
This does take including limits and a privilege system.
Don't worry, I can help come up with that too!

It's often easier to use this type of system if there are siblings, other children, or a supportive adult who is on board with receiving proximal praise for doing what's desired of the target child(ren) when they do. It's not mandatory, just quicker and more effective.

I can talk you through the process to do it all on your own for just my simba price. If charts need me to laminate and the markers added to them, I will need to be paid to create and ship them.

The construction process is pretty straight forward and it would be quicker if you have time, motivation and willingness to build it yourself, but I am open to doing the work if that is more practical. I'm not very fast with what all I have going on in my life, so it could easily be over a month before I'd have it together and out to you. I'd rather feed you ideas to print from your home computer so you can get started THIS week!

Training & Qualifications

I'm a mother of 6, two who have special needs. Five of my kids are still home. I have 9 years of experience as a "parent educator" from home based learning with all of them at various points, all of them last year and the 5 here this year. They get along like friends, and sometimes tutors for one another.

Availability & Preferences

Most days I am available between 3-4pm, 6-8pm, and sometimes 10-11pm

Trading Preference: I prefer being paid in simbi

Jaime's requests

Jaime is requesting
I guess I need interviewed
My therapist thinks I have repressed emotions about things I've been through. I think I'm pretty open but I guess I have teared up about things when she's pried. I suppose I need to have questions...

About Jaime Coats

I've overcome many obstacles in my life and look forward to overcoming many more. I've been through a variety of unusual life situations and have learned a good deal about healthy communication, with anxiety through personal will power, and resilience. In college I focused on child and family education. Other academic studies have included personal development, communication, critical thinking, ethics and psychology. Extra curricular activities include crafting, art, science, philosophy, and studying survivalism tactics I am an artist, a survivor, and a mother of 6, two of whom have delays. I've coped with loss after having outlived two children I was thoroughly invested in caring for; first my little sister, who was a year and a half younger than me and had down syndrome, then passed away at 17; second, a previous partner's 9 year old son who had cerebral palsy I did live-in care for over the course of a year and a half, until he passed when he was 11. I have a deep sense of protectiveness for children and people with delays. show more
