Yes, but, we pay him for some of his cleaning. Other jobs around the house are simply done because he lives there with us.

Mine have to keep their rooms and play room clean( toys up and clothes). They do other things around the house but that's because they want to. My 8 year recently asked if he can start doing dishes, so I wash and rinses.

Yep. They have chores to do. It really does teach them how to be clean and organized when they get older I believe.

Yes, they live there also plus it teaches them to upkeep a home. Eventually they will live on their own.

Yes. They live here too- it shouldn't just be up to me to make out home a pleasant, livable environment.

Organize? No. He'll throw everything together. Lol

Clean? Yes. Mainly it's his toys, dusting... and the bathroom- light cleaning... he can't aim and I'm sick of cleaning up pee. The major cleaning, is on me- like the bathroom deeper clean- I do that. The oven, etc, mine.

We are huge proponents of chores. We are all part of the family and we all need to work together to keep our home running smoothly.
