What kind of chores do your kids do?

Posted by   + Show Post

My Boys are 10, 9, & 7

My boys are in charge of keeping their bedroom, game room, and bathroom clean ( and it doesn't have to be spotless) 

the older are in charge of vacuuming they alternate with me( we take turns vacuuming) 

the older two also take turns with me loading and unloading the diswasher

All three are in charge of trash duty

We also alternate putting their clothes away after i washed them

They also sweep & mop sometimes.

8 year old DD cleaned up the mess her and her 5 year old sister call a room yesterday and vacuumed it. I only had to ask once. Very Proud of her. Gave her 50 cents to buy an extra milk at school today.

Well, mine are 8, 3 and 3 months.  The 8 y/o keeps her room clean, puts away her laundry, feeds the fish, and helps the 3 y/o clean her room (they both play in there a lot).  She also loves to clean the bathroom (Lysol the sink, clean the mirrors, scrub the toilet...she's weird, lol).  They take turns feeding the dogs.

 My kids are 9 and 2yrs.  My son(9) makes his bed and cleans his room.  Puts his and his sisters laundry away and they both pick up the livingroom (toys) every evening.  Thats about it.  He helps me with little things once in awhile.
