  • It's a joint effort.. They all know their jobs, and it makes mine so much easier.... We refuse to raise entitled kids.

  • I do the biggest part of it. I will ask for help once in a while, but even then it's something small.

  • I am not the only one in this house. I am NOT the one that creates the largest messes. I am NOT the only one that cleans the house. I do day to day stuff. But my children clean their own rooms, their own bathrooms and do their own laundry. They help cook, they help with dishes, they help with trash and recycling days. They feed their own pets and rotate who feeds the outdoor animals.
    The best thing we can do for our children is to teach them to be able to clean, cook, do laundry - basically keep a house for when they are out on their own.

  • My daughter loves helping with laundry and will bring things to the dishwasher. She'll also help me tidy her toys. Right now, that's good since she isn't even 3. As she grows older, her contribution will increase.

  • My kids are 8, 10 and 12. Yes they do chores and do their fair share.
