How to Start Chores

Question

My children are 3, 5, and 7 years old and until now I have done everything around the house - chores, cleaning, laundry, you name it. Why?? Because I stay at home and thought it was my job to make life easy for them. After reading several of John's books, I am changing a lot of things around here. We have just implemented the ticket system to help curb some of their "entitled" behaviors such as disobedience and complaining, and it is working well so far. I would love some insight on where to begin with chores. Is it best to give them specific, listed-out daily tasks? And what if they choose not to do them? Is that something that can be added to the ticketed target behaviors? Or is this something that should be approached differently and separately? I'm not trying to complicate things but want to get started with giving them the responsibility of household tasks. Thanks
