The Chore Solution: Making Families Better by Working Together {Review}

Do you ever have trouble keeping (or getting) your house clean? 
Need ideas on how to get your children involved? 
Today I am reviewing a book by Jason and Ann Cowan that just might help!
The Chore Solution: Making Families Better by Working Together
 Jason and Ann are the parents of 4 boys of varying ages. They wrote this book in response to their own challenges as parents. They were tired of house always being a mess, there never being enough clothes, and the kids always wanting the latest toy, DVD or video game.

The book starts off by posing 7 Challenges and then help you work through those challenges in a way that will work best for your family (they even included pages at the end of the book for you to record your thoughts and solutions to the challenges). By the end of the book you have developed a chore solution for your family that doesn't require you to do all the work or buy all the latest toys/gadgets!

My Thoughts:
I love that this is a quick read that helps you develop the perfect system for your family. We already had a system in place but after reading The Chore Solution we have made modifications that give the children more responsibility which gives me a cleaner home with less effort! Jason and Ann pack a ton of useful information into this short book. It is also a book that can be revisited as family dynamics change and kids get older!

In a Nutshell:
~Available in ebook, paperback and hardcover
~About 50 pages
~Helps you create a customized chore solution for your home
~Includes pages for recording your answers to questions posed throughout the book
