Comments on: Thoughtful Thursday: Kids ‘n’ Chores! http://hornes.org/2009/11/thoughtful-thursday-kids-n-chores/ Tue, 22 Jul 2014 20:14:12 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.1 By: Angie Hull http://hornes.org/2009/11/thoughtful-thursday-kids-n-chores/#comment-2254 Fri, 20 Nov 2009 04:20:37 +0000 http://www.hornes.org/?p=2011#comment-2254 Our kids are 18, 9 and 7. Yes they do chores. No they do not get paid for them; we believe that is part of being in a family and that it is beneficial for the child (children) to have a sense of belonging and chores “jobs” as we call them at our house is a good way for them to “belong”. Our oldest loads the dishwasher and sweeps/mops the kitchen and bathrooms. Our nine year old makes his bed, scoops poop in the back yard, clears and sets the table and unloads the dishwasher. The kitchen duties he does every other day and our 7 year old does the same kitchen chores on opposites days. Our 7 yr. old does unload everything. He used to only unload the low stuff, he used to say he was too short to unload the high stuff. But after his well visit in Aug. we discovered that he was only about an inch and a half shorter than his older brother so now he unloads everything!!

However, just this week she has been wanting to help me load and unload the dishwasher. She can pull things off the bottom shelf and then hands them to me to put away. I then hand her the stuff off the top shelf. She will walk the three steps to the cabinets and then hand it back to me. When I load thing into the dishwasher I will hand her the silverware to put into the basket. She’s done this all on her own without me asking. I’m not sure where she got it from, but I’m liking it. After Christmas she will move into her toddler bed and we’ll start with bed making then.
