 How old were your kids when you started giving them chores to do around the house?

All 3 of them started with a simple chore chart at that age, along with an allowance..

I have had my 3 children doing actual chores for about a yr. They are 5,6 & 9. Their chores consist of seting the table, cleaning the table & help feed the fur babies (dogs & cat) My oldest just recently started taking out the trash.

 I am asking because I am a fan of wife swap and I see a lot of mom's who let their kids do absolutely nothing! Seriously when they are 13 years old can't they make their own bed? Of course you shouldn't slave them but a few things to do around the house won't kill them.

Mine have done "chores" since like 4 and 6...now almost 8 and 10.  Gotta teach them young, tho don't make them slaves.  And if it's done incorrectly, show them the correct way, so they don't learn how to do things wrong!
