what would be some good chores for a 4 year old? my son when at his fathers house gets his own meals, and is made to do grown up fend for yourself type things. it's frustrating cause he thinks he has to do it here. He now has a new baby brother and i was thinking i wanted yo give him responsibilities so he knows what is ok to do around here. did this make any senseAnswer Question

I never used the word chores. It sounds so bad. I was a single mom with three sons. We did things together. I often used "first, then". First we clean up the living room, then we go to Pizza Hut for lunch. First clean your room, then you can have a friend over.
They did their own laundry as soon as they were tall enough. The last person done eating put the dishes in the dishwasher and neatened the kitchen. They ate pretty fast and with little eating issues. We homeschooled and it worked out with me being a full time doctoral student. I didn't do too much and they had no chores or punishments.
