    How can I teach my tween to do chores?

    I want our 10 year old son to begin cleaning and doing chores. How can I get him involved? What types of healthy incentives can I use?

    Incentive is the key, nobody likes doing chores, we don't kids don'd, but they do have to be done.
    Also huge research on self esteem and chores, the more competent a person feels the better they feel about themselves.  My own children all had set chores, pocket money was on Sunday, their room had to be tidy before pocket money would be handed over, very simple, chores done, room tidy pocket money, if now done no pocket money, seemed to work.
