  • This is a mini version of what I did with our kids when they were growing up. EVERYONE living in our house has their own schedule, but they also have to "give" thirty minutes to the general household's benefit. They can choose any thirty minute task they want, but it encourages them to look beyond just what helps them out (their own clean laundry, etc.) to what makes the whole house run smoother. The fifteen minute thing is do-able for even the most distracted or short-attention spanned, and the timer helps you to focus on the task at hand. Professional cleaning services use this technique (the timer) as well when training their employees--each room should only take so much time. It's a good discipline to master! - by DIRTYBUNNY
    I love the idea of the timer, maybe it will keep me more focused! I have the "easily distracted, start 10 things and never finish one disease"! - by SCRAPGAL22
