What kind of instructions help when assigning chores?

Short and Sweet

Make charts that outline chores. Keep the language simple and clear. Break each job down into its smallest components. "Make the bed," for example, may be broken down into micro-steps:
Smooth the bottom sheet with your hand.
Smooth the top sheet.
Pull up the blanket.
Smooth the blanket.
Pull up the cover.
Smooth the cover…and so forth.
