Right now I am getting the 5th degree from my inlaws on how my kids have no chores or responsibilities,,, and how this will keep them from becoming grown men.. UGH!

****update*** now the kids are being too loud on the awesome scooters the inlaws got them ( you just move side to side on them!)  You have a headache go upstairs! COME ON this is my house, and the kids are enjoying your gifts with laughter and joy.... .. WHAT THE HELL! ??????????????????????????

 Depends on their age. DS is 3 and he helps pick up, he throws things away, and he will even help wipe off the counters and do dishes. I don't expect him to do anything by himself but I do expect him to come in and help pick up his toys and stuff.

Honestly, coming from a person who had no chores or responsibilities growing up, they should have some chores to do, but I saw in a reply that they do help out around the house, just not while on vacation lol

yeah I grew up not having to do any chores, but i did have to keep my room clean, and do my own laundry. They are good when we ask them to do things, and during the week, one cleans the bathroom while the other cleans the bathrooms.  The oldest is good at doing laundry.
