What works for us is a chore chart! I bought my daughter a "My Magnetic Responsibility Chart". This is our first time trying a chore chart. She will be 4 in August so I started off with simple 'chores'. Things she does everyday anyways: stop whining, say please and thank you, get dressed, brush teeth, put toys away, take a bath, and get ready for bed. Once she gets used to these things I will change them out for more difficult tasks.
Edit: I had a few people as where I found this chart. In case anyone else is wondering I bought it at Toys"r"Us. It was by the puzzles and the brand is Melissa & Doug. I think it costs around $20.00. Well worth it if chores get done! :)
Sorry the picture is so dark. The board is shiny so there was a reflection every time the flash went off and the rest of the board was dark.
