I have found a wonderful technique for housework......make your kids do it!
Much to his chagrin, Gogurt has been recruited for chore duty. When he gets home from school, he has a snack, does his homework, then checks out his chore list on the fridge.
This was his list of chores for today:
1. Load and run the dishwasher.
2. Make your bed.
3. Vacuum the living room. Return vacuum to hall closet.
4. Gather all the dirty clothes in the house and bring them to the laundry room.
He does not get paid for doing these things. I think he actually enjoys it, a little bit, maybe. And today Poptart told me she wished she was older like her brother. When I asked why, she said she wanted to do homework and chores! Oh wait, baby, you're time is coming.
I'm curious, are your kids expected to do chores around the house? If so, what kind of chores do you have them do?
