So everyday is challenge. I know even if we have a significant other or spouse that the house chores seem overwhelming. How I cope is first, I appreciate that I have a family to dirty up our house but many days I get overwhelmed with cleaning.
First- learn to Delegate. Ask everyone old enough to do certain chores. No matter how small the chore, it still helps and teaches our littles how to do everyday tasks.
Second- make a chart for each day of the week and assign chores to each person. We made a chore chart that is the same for each day of the week. I labeled each chore with a child’s name. I also made a list for weekend mornings that the boys know HAS to be done BEFORE any electronics can be touched. It still takes reminding but the lists definitely help our ADHD brains.
Living with ADHD as a parent has been a challenge. Researching ways to make our life alittle easier and more organized has been my goal. I am constantly looking on Pinterest, google and books. One thing I have found that seems to help is to give my sons and I lists to follow each day. I have a morning list, afternoon list and bedtime list. Each list has every step they need to accomplish before anything else. Some days it’s done without issues…..other days are alittle harder.
