  • Lets see, he is allowed to play alone in his room, but must ask before he can watch his TV. No running in the house, no jumping on the bed, no lying, talk to me-don't whine at me.

    He makes his own cereal in the morning, picks out his own clothes, brushes his teeth, puts his dirty laundry in the washer, cleans his room, vacuums the rug in the living room, collects the bathroom trash in the main trash, handles the shower completely solo.....Oh and he makes sandwiches too.

    Bedtime 8:30, awake at 6:30.

  • My son is only 5 (almost) but he clears the table after dinner, gets dressed on his own, brushes his teeth (we brush again though or check them), we have the no jumping on the bed too because that is why we have a trampoline, bring all the dirty laundry downstairs, puts the clothes in the washer and dryer, he will also put his clothes away after they are folded, cleans his room and the play room if needed, he attempts to vacuum (SP?) but needs help, he has to ask to play any games, color, watch tv, play outside, etc.
