i started my son at 3. Each morning he would grab an already filled cup of water off the table and dump it in the very large guinee pig bottle on the side of the cage and then give her a carrot or celery piece that i of course already have out. Now that he is 4 he wipes the kitchen table off each day after dinner but no longer cares for the rodent. Next year we are going to give him back the feeding of his rodent so that he will have both todo. He gets to choose his reward that he is working toward each sunday night. This week he is working toward lunch at Chik-filet with an hour in the play room, Next week he will be working toward a new v-smile game.

I hate the word chores and never used it with my children. I taught them to cooperate and we did what needed to be done. My toddler grandson wipes the table when he makes a mess, picks things up off the floor, and does other little things. My kids did their own laundry from the time they were big enough to do so. The last one done at meals put the dishes in the dishwasher. We would work together to get things done before we would go out to do things for the day. I would never make them do something like clean their room alone.
