ds has chores in our house. He is 7yrs old. Every night after dinner we clean up the kitchen. This means:
putting away (depends)
sanititzing counter tops and stove top, dining table and coffee table (me)
taking out garbage (ds)
Lately ds has been either getting time out right before wash up because of talking back or attitude or has been procrastinating by going super slow.
So I have told him I will not wait on him to put away the dishes, I will finish up my chores and if the dishes aren't dry to put away, I'm not doing it, he has to.
What do you think? Is that fair?
