So, how in the world do you encourage such a thing!?!
Lately, I have been working working on this with my 2 1/2 year old. We have been getting into some great habits with picking up dirty clothes, independently getting dressed, "making" the bed every morning, taking dishes to the sink etc. I find that we are having great success. Instead of a "reward" I am trying to give positive praise and point out all the things that have been accomplished.
But, I know that he will not always be so willing, or easily motivated, to do so.
How do you teach responsibility to your kids?
Is it realistic to expect children to be motivated intrinsically or is that just a result you'll see after extrinsic motivation?
What kind of extrinsic motivators do you use?
