New Chore Responsibilities
Mondays and Tuesdays are pretty heavy chore days around here. On Mondays we clean and organize bedrooms, dust, and vacuum. On Tuesdays we clean bathrooms. For a few months now, T has been responsible for cleaning the downstairs bathroom, so I thought it was only fair for the girls to be responsible for the upstairs bathroom. They are doing a great job. L takes care of the vanity and mirror. K takes care of the toilet. They take turns with the bathtub. I am still taking care of the floors, but it is so wonderful to go in and the bathroom already be so clean! You can't just give children rags and tell them to go clean, they have to be taught how to do it. Once they learn it becomes a routine for them and they automatically know what they are expected to do on certain days of the week! How do you handle chores in your house? Do your children help?
