Chores really wasn’t something I’ve thought about since having my first daughter. Yes of course they NEED to learn responsibility. Yes of course I had them by 8 yrs old. I just haven’t ever thought about it, because, I’ve been too busy making sure my little humans stayed alive and fed, safe and clean.
As often as I do, my sink is loaded with repeatedly “soaked” dishes. I load up the sink, put the soap in while the waters running, and then turn the water off and walk away.
Rather than standing there and doing the final step myself, I’m making my girls do it. This was the most they’ve gotten along this morning.
