Do you expect your kids to do house chores? If so, What and at what age?
My kids do chores...we explain that it is part of being in a family.
Daily, my 8 yo empties the dishwasher, makes her bed, puts away her laundry feeds the dog dinner, helps walk the dog, dresses herself and is responsible for her daily hygiene. My 3yo feeds the dog breakfast, helps walk him, picks up her toys, brushes her teeth and dresses herself. Both of them help set and clear the table. They also help prepare and serve meals.
On Saturday mornings, we spend about 45 min as a family cleaning the whole house...anything that gets skipped during the week and other general stuff. My 3 yo and 8 yo sweep the house, and 8yo mops. She loves the swiffer.
When talking with my friends, it seems most kids my children's age do nothing, or a very small part of this...
Just wondering what goes on in other homes.
