I am a bad mom…my daughter has very little chores except for keeping her room clean and cleaning the bathroom on occassion. My daughter has a very FULL schedule. She does a homework club after school then goes to weight training from 4:30-530 then basketball from 5:30-7.
Oh thursdays she leaves basketball early (it is the off season) she then goes to volleyball from 7-9:15 on Thursday. School ball changes the schedule from homework club to school sports…
Weekends and other time is either traveling to sports competition..(plays for an elite volleyball team and playing up with highschool in basketball..she is an 8th grader) so any down time from sports and school is her time….her schedule is pretty tight so I try to give her down time to hang with her freinds and do teenager things. She has her grown-up life to do housework etc….and as long as her grades are good and she doesnt feel stressed she will keep up this schedule when she gets into highschool.
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?
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.
