  • My 4.5 year old is responsible for getting herself dressed, cleaning her room weekly, helping to clean up the toys downstairs nightly, she empties the silverware out of the dish washer, takes her own dishes to the sink and puts her own folded cloths away, taking out the bathroom trash is a good one, she could bring them to me to empty, so that is another one for her. oh and bringing me her dirty cloths.

  • Look at the article on kids and chores which shows age appropriate chores and also some books and tools for teaching kids chores http://www.cjkidz.com/parentsgrandparentsteachers.html  look on responsibility and chores section.  Reading books about chores and responsibility help kids to understand and when they see their favorite character do something they want to also!
