Take a little time...

to teach something about responsibility. Kids love being given responsibilities.  It gives a sense of pride and helps them feel "grown up." Today's 10 minute activity is to teach your children how to make their bed.
During this time, be all smiles.  Make it a fun and happy time, so they will associate this chore with something good, and not something that simply "has to be done".  Show them how much cleaner and organized a room looks with a made bed.
After teaching the art of making a bed, pass the chore onto the child.  Maybe even start giving rewards for remembering to make it each morning.  Your kids will love you for trusting them to be big enough for this chore!
