Chores vs. Piano Practice
I have learned a lot from parents over the past 25 years of teaching piano.
One of the best techniques for getting kids to practice that I've ever heard, besides the ones that my mom used on me, is the one where you give your son or daughter a choice between doing the dishes or practicing their instrument.
It goes something like this...
What kid doesn't want to get out of doing the dishes? While your son or daughter practices their instrument, you take your time cleaning the dishes left over from dinner.
Now you may not want to use this one every night, but it's a very effective technique that every parent should be using, at the very least, once or twice a week!
