When To Begin Chores?

>> Monday, April 14, 2008

I'm thinking forward to summer vacation. To be quite honest I'm dreading it. I don't know what we are going to do with all those free hours in the day. I know many will be filled with outdoor play and, hopefully, exhausted naps but I want the girls to have some sort of schedule as well.

I'm also playing with the idea of making them do "chores". It probably wouldn't be anything more than I get them to do now, but I'm thinking of adding more structure and maybe a chore chart.

What do you think? When did you add chores to your child's routine? And do your kids earn anything from doing their chores? I guess that I just figure if I start them young it won't be such a surprise when they get older...

And if you're looking for a free chore chart- look no further. Lots of fun designs with more to come.

The Fritz Facts 10:51 AM  

My kids do chores, have since they turned 2. Simple things, pick up your toys, help unload the dishwasher (silverware only until recently). But now that Hunter is 11, he is in charge of taking out the garbage when he is here, keeping his room clean, cleaning the bathrooms, and sweeping. Boo is in charge of keeping her room clean, helping put away laundry, folding towels and helping unload the dishwasher. Those are standard, but there are always more that come
