Now that does not mean, that I have had them scrub the floors, wash/ dry/ and fold the clothes, or vacuum the entire house, but I have had them help with chores based on their abilities.
The kids do things like grab the trash cans from the rooms for trash day, help set the table, empty their plates after dinner, or bring their clothes to the laundry room. They even help make their own beds, with a little assistance from mom.
And what is really great, is they do this because it is fun and not because of an allowance. They actually fight over helping me out. I’m sure as they get older they will put up a fight not to help, but for now, I am enjoying it.
So with that being said, do your kids help with the housework? If so, at what age did they start? And, the big question is, Are you giving them an allowance (if so, at what age did you start)?
I would love to hear your thoughts! Feel free to comment below the post.
