Do you make/require your children to do household chores?
If so, What Chores & how old are the children?
Also, is allowance part of the equation or is it because they need to
learn that families work together and everyone needs to do their part?
As most of you know I have 2 children and we require them to do
chores. I am revamping what is expected of them as we speak. I feel it
is important that kids learn how to properly keep house as well as how
to plan and prepare meals.
Obviously I don’t expect them to cok and
clean my house, but I do want them to be self sufficient when they are
old enough for their own apartments and not live like pigs & eat out of
a take-out box, lol.
