Do you feel more like the household maid than the queen of her castle? When Kay Wills Wyma asked her son to clean his room and he replied that it was her job, she knew something had to change. Kay and her husband began a 12-month experiment with their five children, introducing a new chore each month and rewarding them for a job well done. From making beds to grocery shopping to cleaning toilets, her family experienced for themselves the ways meaningful work can transform self-absorption into earned self-confidence and concern for others.
