Toddler (ages 2 and 3)
Early Elementary (ages 6-8)
High School (15-18)By the time my children reach high school age I expect them to have the ability to do almost everything around the house. While they don’t do everything I know they are capable in all areas of home management.
When a child becomes proficient at a chore it is time to give the chore to a younger child. I take the lowest common denominator approach to chores in our house. This means the youngest child who is able to do the chore gets the job. When the child is learning their chores they are supervised by a sibling or a parent.
While our family isn’t perfect when it comes to chores my kids are all encouraged to work together to keep the house clean and organized.
The only thing I would change in our family is starting chores when my kids were younger. When I only had two young children it was easier to just do it all myself. Not anymore. Having kids that can help around the house keeps the house cleaner and gives everyone more time for fun activities.
