My kindergartner and 3 year old both have daily chores. They have to do them every morning. It is teaching them to be responsible and that they have to pitch in when they live in our home!

Keeping their own areas clean and tidy is a truly important skill to instill. Try to make helping mom and dad with other chores a treat. It's a way to let them know you trust their work. Don't take anything too serious, stay silly!

I have chores everyday...Sometimes it's a pain, but I am glad to realize how mush this will help me in the future. I do think I have more responsibility than the average teen though.

yes. I have 4 kids. 13, 10, 6, & 4. They all help around the house! I don't pay them to do them. I expect them to help out because I am not their maid! I am teaching them social skills they need in the real world!

Absolutely!!! I strongly believe that by giving them chores at an early age it will be beneficial to them in the long run. As a single mom raising 2 boys, I do believe they will grow to be independant people in society.
