  • Mine is responsible for her room, co-responsible (with her sister) for the daily cleaning in their bathroom (I do the deep-clean once a week), and for tidying the living room every day.

  • Mine started vacuuming and dusting their own rooms at that age, putting away their clothes, setting the table, and keeping their toys put away.

  • I have a kindergardener. She has the bathroom garbages, her cloths in the hamper and put away the clean ones, walk the dog in the AM, silverware, clean the upstair playroom and bedroom, keep her shoes and school things put away. Dirty dishes to the sink, set the table. And on the weekends she usually gets her sister breakfast, I move to slow in the morning for them.
