Kids Can Help with Family Cleaning

by Trisha

Recently, while on a mother-daughter trip with my oldest daughter, she nicely informed me it was time that the two youngest members of our family take on a few more family chores. Her reasoning was that they were getting older and were very capable of doing more if we would teach them. I got to thinking about her suggestion and I realized I had not been teaching them as I had the older three. She was right – it was time to teach the next two in line.

As I mentioned in Tips for Delegating, I needed to start delegating more of the chores around the house, so I created a list of chores that our kids can do working alongside us as we begin the training process.

i think, if kids are willing to help with family cleaning, then it is OK. but, if it becomes burden to them, i will oppose it. and before giving any household task to a kid, as a parent, one must train him properly.
