What are some age approriate chores for my 4 and 6 year old sons to help around the house and learn more responsibility. We had a rather bad parent teacher conference this morning and I'm not very happy right now. One of the things his teacher suggested is chores. What chores do your kids do to help you?Answer Question

Anything that has to do with cleaning up after themselves: cleaning up their toys, books, coloring stuff, putting dirty dishes in the sink, helping put away clean dishes, putting dirty laundry in the hamper, helping fold and put away their own clothes, helping take out the trash/recycling, helping carry in groceries, dusting (my kids love to dust), etc.
My 4yo does all that plus cleans the kitchen counter after she makes her lunch and sweeps the floor (well, she tries). She helps in the yard and helps with the baby. My older kids (8, 9 and 10) know how to do their own laundry and have been doing it for a couple years now. They learned to fold and put it away at 4 without help. They all empty the dishwasher without help.
