If there’s one thing that I’ve struggled with as a parent, it’s setting reasonable chores for my boys. I’m not a fan of cleaning so it’s taken me years just to be able to set a reasonable schedule for myself, never mind monitoring anybody else! But at the same time, I know my boys are old enough to be helping out. I’m just not sure how to get started.
But Seventh Generation, a company whose eco-friendly cleaning products I’ve loved for years now, has created a handy guide for me and any other parent that’s wondered what chores are appropriate for their kids. Check it out and see what cleaning jobs your children can tackle!
- Assist in making their bed
- Pick up toys when playtime is over
- Bring dirty clothes to laundry hamper
- Neatly pile books and/or magazines
