The Children You Want With The Kids You Have Review and Giveaway...

Do you want to know the secret of getting kids to work? Train them early!

If you want your children to work together, finish their chores, complete their homework, and take care of their own personal hygiene and possessions, you have to train them. And it usually takes a helping hand and a few hints from someone who has "been there - done that." These suggestions, charts, and to-do lists from professional organize Marie Ricks will get you well on your way to having a clean home, a well-kept yard, and helpful, hardworking, on-their-way-to-being-independent children.

With this no-nonsense book, you will find:

  • Age-specific charts for chores
  • Fast-Clean and Deep-Clean check-off lists
  • Instructions for setting up your own Training Children to Work Master Plan
  • The right thing to say and the right way to say it to get the job done

  • This book was wonderful! I love that it talks about training our kids and refers to the scripture: "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it" -Proverbs 22:6

    What a great book to help us raise
    independent children! The tips, charts, and check-off lists are really cool. I really liked the chapter "Teach Them to Feel Grateful". Thanks Marie for this awesome book and all your help!

    Now here's the exciting part...

    I get to give away one of these books!
