My four year old loves to help out. He helps load the washer, dryer, and dishwasher. Today he's mopping the floor. I can't get the damn thing off of him! Im enjoying this while it lasts because one day I won't even be able to get him out of bed before noon.

Happy Sunday, ladies!

She's 3 and we're working on getting her to pick up her toys.   We'll add easy tasks, or try to, as she gets older.

I can't get my kid to pick up his toys, but if there's a mop around, look out!

Sometimes it's a pain to have to back and redo it. But I love that he wants to help me :)

I make them clean up after themselves and other odd jobs.

Maybe it makes him feel grown up!

usually its easier for me to do it myself, but i do let them help a little.  Dusting, feeding the dogs, picking up toys, throwing out trash, stuff like that.  I'll be thrilled when one of them can unload/load the dishwasher

Yes they all do. My youngest is the only one who does it willingly, the older two are made to
