I have had several of you ask me about teaching kids to do chores. Specifically, what to start and when? I found this post and thought that you all might like to check it out. Of course use this merely as a guide-- if your child doesn't seem capable or ready, wait. Conversely, if there's stuff your child is already doing, go with that. You know your child best... but I like having guides such as this one to know if I am on the right track.
