Chores for Children
I have many parents ask me how I get my kids to do chores around the house. Once I sat and thought about it I figured out that I have been giving them little "jobs" to do around the house since they were little. It started with simple stuff like making their beds and cleaning their rooms. It seems like every six months or a year I add something new. I like to start slow so as not to overwhelm them with a bunch of things that they have to do. My children now know that Sunday is cleaning day and specifically for them laundry day. They bring their baskets to the laundry room and make sure that none of the clothes are inside out. Then they load the washer and dryer with my guidance. Then when its all done they sort out their clothes and put them away. Now their clothes might not be put away perfectly but they are learning and with time they will get better at everything they do including chores.
So when it comes to chores for children I say;
- Start slow
- Start easy
- Have fun
- Remember they are still kids
- Help them when they need it
Of course kids like to help once they see what you are doing so let them help and don't worry about whether or not they are doing it perfectly; perfection comes with time. Make sure you have fun and get the task done.
Some chores that children can do:
- Make their beds
- Clean their rooms
- Put away their dishes
- Put away their clothes
- Wipe down tables
- Help you with any chore you are doing
