I think my son is old enough to do some chores around the house, besides just cleaning his room. When I was 10 I was doing dishes, taking out trash, and cleaning my bathroom, lol, tho I'm sure my mom had to go back over my work sometimes. My brothers and I rotated chores. Anyway, my husband grew up with a maid who did everything for him. I stay home and I REFUSE to have a maid when I am capable and I think my children should learn some responsibility and do a bit of work too. Sometimes I feel my parents had us doing too much and I'd just like to find a balancewith my own kids. So what are some good chore ideas that are age appropriate for my 10 year old son? Thanks!!
