Ok ladies, I'm back from vacation (had a GREAT time btw...lol), and I've been dying to ask this question:
What is your opinion on the following topic: chores?
Some moms feel that their kids should not have to do chores, especially if the mom stays at home. The moms in question feel that since part of their role is to stay at home, they should be doing the household work.
Other moms (like myself) feel that kids should have some responsibilities around the house. Doing chores teaches a child that they are indeed an integral part of the home (as well as the family), and it teaches the value of hard work.
What is your opinion?
I don't think there are chores. There is stuff that needs done and everyone does it. It's one of the adult's responsibilities to make sure stuff gets done. I take care of my 24 mo grandson and he has been doing things around the house for months. My adult sons can do everything including sewing, shopping, cooking, baking, everything.

Please don't say your children and husband help out. When you say that you are taking ownership, it's your job and they are just helping (how nice of them!). It's everyones job to take care of the house. Try to move from thinking about others helping out to having a cooperative home.
