 He waters the farm animals and helps his dad feed them, does his own laundry, and he makes breakfast every morning for all of us.

My 11 y/o feeds the cats every evening. Puts his clothes away weekly, cleans his room, wipes the remote controls and computer key boards down with a Clorox wipe weekly, and helps with the dishes. He also cleans up after himself in general living areas.

My 8 y.o. Cleans his room, waters the plants, helps with dishes, wipes down the dining room and living room tables, and puts away his clothes. He also cleans up after himself in general living areas.

My 19 y.o. Cleans her room, does her own laundry, takes care of her pets (rabbits, fish and turtle) and cleans up after herself in general living areas.

They take care of the dog (most of the time)

my oldest mows.

They don't really have a lot when school is on. Their main jobs are to focus on their school and football.

Dd (10) is in charge of dusting, recycling, feeding the dog and cleaning bathroom mirrors.

DS2 (13) sweeps n mops guest bathroom and wipes down toilet, unloads the dishwasher, does cat litter.

DS1 (15) takes out the trash (kitchen and cans to curb), cleans counters in guest bathroom, does doogie dookie duty and loads the dishwasher.

They all sort their laundry to be washed and put it away afterward. They know if they need a uniform washed, or specific thing to get clean they can throw a load in any time but I do wash on Fridays so toss it in the sorted piles and I run it through.

Food help: Everyone eats so everyone helps with groceries. Mostly I shop and they all unload the car. I like to put things away. I do ask a different kid each day to help cook as needed.

Everyone helps clear the table before meals, set for dinner, set and clear afterward.

 We don't really have much in the way of set chores to do everyday, but all 3 kids are expected to help out whenever asked.

Ds2 has to put away his clean laundry, keep a clear path from his bedroom door to the bed and window, and set the table. He has also helped empty the dishwasher, wiped down the table, used the weed whacker, vacuumed, and cleaned the outside of the toilet whenever told to.

Picking up his room, cleaning his bathroom (all but tub), recycling, taking out trash, feeding dog. He can do his own laundry but has to jump up on the dryer to get down the laundry soap and dryer sheet, so I usually do it.

Love the wiping remotes and keyboards with a clorox wipe, I'm going to add this to my 10year old ds list. 


Quoting mumsy2three:

My 11 y/o feeds the cats every evening. Puts his clothes away weekly, cleans his room, wipes the remote controls and computer key boards down with a Clorox wipe weekly, and helps with the dishes. He also cleans up after himself in general living areas.

My 8 y.o. Cleans his room, waters the plants, helps with dishes, wipes down the dining room and living room tables, and puts away his clothes. He also cleans up after himself in general living areas.

My 19 y.o. Cleans her room, does her own laundry, takes care of her pets (rabbits, fish and turtle) and cleans up after herself in general living areas.

 Keep room clean

Feed pets

load and unlad dishwasher

wash dishes

sweep/vaccum/mop floors

wash dishes

cook dinner

set/clear the table

Put laundry away

tidy up bathroom/livingroom

Make school lunches

And just pickup random things laying around the house.

She is 11.

My 5 yr old has the exact smae chore list with a few differences, like she dries the dishes nightly.

All our chores are done as a family unit.

We all cook dinner nightly together no matter what. We all set and clear the table, we all load and unload the dishwasher.

dd washes the dishes, dd dries them and I put them away.

DD will sweep the kitchen floor and the other one will then mop it, and they rotate and take turns.

Everything gets done quicker and faster and has the same amount of stuff to do. They also get payed weekly for chores. And I give them weekends off from everything but dinner and dishes.
