      My son is 12 and he’s been able todo his own laundry for about a year now. (Wash, dry, put away)
      He alsowashes, dries and puts away the dishes on alternating nights with me.
      He mops, sweeps, vacuums, dusts, takes out trash.

      He does not get “paid” for it, as this is part of the thankless job that we all do in our family.

      However, he does get “coupons” once a week if he completes his chores without whining. Coupons are good for a free room cleaning by mom, a chore-free night, video game rentals, a special treat (ice cream cone, candy bar, etc.) or having a friend over.

      Another Thread …

      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?

      Just curious.

      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.
