  • clean up after themselves. Maybe "help" with putting silverware (minus knives) away. Help putting their clothes back in their dressers. Putting their after meals dishes in the sink or next.
    I am a mean mommy and they don't get rewarded for helping lol.

  • Mostly putting toys away, throwing her dirty clothes in the hamper and dishes in the sink. I believe helping out is part of being in a family, so we don't do rewards.

  • Let them help with anything they are capable of doing. As for rewards?? I think a child should just be required to do certain chores because it's the right thing to do to help the family. It teaches responsibility.
