Here’s a little teaser:
Your three-year-old is not too young to match the socks in the family laundry basket; your five-year-old can make his bed by pulling up the comforter. Your eight-year-old can make her own lunch and your 10-year-old can do all of the above, plus put away the groceries and do the family laundry — sorting it by colours first.
Is this happening in your home?
I believe it is very important to develop a work ethic in children. Also, being a member of our family means helping out with chores. It is not a punishment. For more chore tips, read some of my blogs on “Working as a Family.”
