Age Appropriate Chores
Sometimes, it is easy to just do the chores at home on my own or with MCJ. The chores get finished quickly. But I have to admit that we have to train the Tatapilla if he has a chance to live in the real world when the time comes and actually survive and flourish. It might be exaggerated but really, some kids these days don't have enough skills to survive living alone unless they have heaps of money at their disposal to buy take-aways, pay the cleaners or anybody who are willing to do it for them. Anyway, here are some tasks/chores that are appropriate for 4-7 year olds:
set the table or help set the table put away toys/things help feed pets water plants help make bed dust put laundry in hamper help put dishes in dishwasher water the garden help wipe up messes help with yard work (rake with child's rake or plant flowers, etc.) help clear table help put away groceries
My Tatapilla already does most of these chores at home. The next step for us are:
make bed water plants clean room with direction set the table clear the table dust vacuum feed pets (depends on type of pet and how your comfortable your child is interacting with the pet) help make dinner put laundry in hamper help wash the car help wash dishes help load/empty dishwasher rake leaves take out the trash

Tatapilla?

...a new word created by Dad (and Mum) to describe their BIG GUY who moves backward with his head when lying on his back - sort of like a caterpillar. Photobucket
