Good. I will run a cloth over them and rerinse them, but if they want to do dishes, all the power to them. As long as they don't use all my dish soap on one sink full

Ps. I did the sharp knives and don't expect them to wash pans

I remember feeling so honored when my mom started letting me do dishes. That got old fast.

Good. Teach them early. I have to get my 7yr old on that. I've had him do it a couple times, but not enough.

I have a dish washer but my 5 yo loves to vacuum and mop. Funny how those things are fun to kids

It is good for them. My kids loved it at that age. Acutally, I think because I let them when they were young, they still enjoy helping and volunteer even if I don't ask them. They are 7,10 and 13.

Mine started asking to wash dishes around that age. They loved it. Enjoy it while it lasts, once they hit 12-13 they will moan and whine about it.
