We all hate that word but there are jobs around the house that have to be done. Like dishes, vacuuming, bathroom cleaning, feeding the dog….well, I could go on and on forever. Chores are never-ending. Are your kids responsible for certain chores around your house? How much responsibility do you give your 10 year old as opposed to your younger kids?
Now that I am working more it is hard to find time to get it all done (and who am I kidding, I couldn’t find enough time in the day when I worked at home). Plus, the kids are getting bigger and (in my opinion) can handle more responsibility.
Our kids do help out around the house a bit. They set and clear the table, empty the dishwasher, make beds, and fold dish towels and napkins, among other things.
What do your kids do? Do you have a chore chart or schedule? Feel free to give me your ideas and suggestions. Thanks!
P.S. Don’t mention this to my kids. They might go on strike 🙂
