Do you refuse to give your kids chores? Why?

Posted by   + Show Post

If your kids DON'T have chores, why?   Are they too busy with school or activities? Do you just prefer to do things yourself or have they proven that they'll do them incorrectly or insufficiently?

washing dishes

Mine are all adults now, but when still at home were expected to do chores. Mosty the chores were cleaning their rooms. feeding the pets, cleaning the litter box, take out the trash, other duties as assigned.They would also help with meal prep too when old enough. Basic household chores need to be learned by everyone, these are skills they will need later on their own.

My oldest is 5 and he's pretty good about doing his.

My kids do not do chores, well not often. They have had them in the past and it was more time spent complaining and not doing so I just said "fuck it" and pretty much do everything myself.

I do chores with my child. He's only 3 but I'm teaching him. One is, he has to pick up his toys when finished, put his dishes in the sink when finished, he loves to help put laundry in the dryer, so I let him help.
I believe children should have chores. Not because we as parents don't want to do them ourselves, but it teaches them to respect things and it helps them to grow so one day they can MOVE OUT!!
