14 year old DS has to make sure garbage is taken out of the kitchen and bathroom and taken out to the street. He has to do his own laundry and keep his room clean. Every now and again he'll get dishes too. (But not often)
13 year old DD doesn't live with us full time (just on weekends) is responsible for her laundry when she comes and keeping the bathroom clean. Every now and again we'll have her do the dishes too.
3 year old DS helps put away the drinks. Water, juice, soda, etc. He loves taking them out the box and putting them in our drink fridge. He LOVES doing his own laundry. (with our help of course) and he loves cleaning up.
Curious as to what your kids do for chores...

My oldest is in Boarding school.... But there he has to work 1 hr a day (different chores), is part of the Academy rules... The 14 and 10, make their own sandwiches the night before swimming day (they eat in school). If they play or watch movies..they are responsible to put things back in place.. We have extra help at home (cleaning person, cook)...but at every meal they lift their plates and take it to the kitchen... In the States, they used make their beds, take the trash out, etc... Here is a bit more relax, but still we have them do some of the stuff...
