Washing Dishes 101 - Wordless Wednesday

It's never too early to train kids to help with housework. My son already knows how to sweep, make his bed and sort/do laundry.

Washing Dishes 101 Wordless Wednesday

Thankfully my son LOVES to help with housework, so this weekend I taught him how to wash dishes. Well really one bowl cause I don't want any broken dishes. Still he was SO proud of his accomplishment. He's going to make a good husband.

Do you train your kids to do housework? Which chore is their favorite?

  1. This is a good age to start because they think it's fun. My kids load and unload the dishwasher, minus the sharp knives and good dishes.

  4. We started our kids on chores early. I'm not sure that you could say any of them have a favorite, but I hear the least complaining about washing the dishes.

  5. My kids have always done chores. My son takes care of his quail and sheep. He used to hate vacuuming but now that we just have area rugs, it's a lot easier.

  7. When my son got old enough he would mow the lawn for us. I can't say he liked doing it but it was one of the responsibilities.

  10. When my son was little he liked to help out. He loved to fold the laundry. Now that he is 18 he doesn't want to do any chores.

  12. My children definitely help around the house and each have their own usual tasks. I think chores teach kids a much needed sense of responsibility at a young age.

  13. My son has some chores to keep up with and we have to balance them around his schedule. He is in high school and he is an athlete so sometimes his days run over 12 hours.

  22. My daughter helps clean off the table, clean her room and wipe the toothpaste off her sink. She's five years old. I plan to teach her how to do her laundry in a few years.

  23. Well, my kids are my 4 cats and our German Shepherd. As much as I would like them to do it, they just can't master those housekeeping skills.
