Chores and Children.

Children and chores (and allowance). If you have little ones, especially more than one, it is best to give them the opportunity to help you. This has been made abundantly clear to me with my recent surgery and downtime. Kids actually like to help and it helps the feel good about themselves. It's also a great way to interact with them without letting the house fall apart.

Here's what my four- and five-year-old are able to accomplish:
  • Make their beds and help with the other beds.
  • Fold the laundry and put it away.
  • Feed the cats (super important when you are faced with screaming cats and screaming baby).
  • Pick up their toys.
  • Set the table & clear the table.
