  • I have plastic cups, plates and bowls for the kids.. after they are washed the kids put them away. we dont wear gloves unless I am using some killer chemicals and at that time the kids are NO WHERE near. They put away their own laundry, clean their rooms, pick up toys from other rooms, water plants.. my oldest is 5 and my youngest is 2, they are great helpers!

  • Yes, they help, no they don't wear gloves (neither do I) and they have been helping since they were old enough to follow me around.
