We do them!

My kids are all helpful. They all want to be my helper and do everything with me. I don't usually get them to do anything on their own except our oldest has asked to do chores and get an allowance so he can buy things when he saves up. He unloads the dish washer (doesn't load it) and he takes the garbage out to the b in. The odd time we will ask him to help us with other things but we generally have lots of helpers jumping to help us! I think it helps them learn responsibility, and in my sons case he's learning to save his $ for when there's something he really wants! So far it's working for him!

thanks Melissa:) it's usually 5$ a week but if we have extra special help I give some more! My kids love helping with everything. Baking, diaper laundry, helping with the baby! It's amazing - especially my girls. They are like little mamas! They don't usually get allowance but I think this summer I will start! Give them some extra $ for the bank accounts:) set price tho otherwise it could get pricey with such helpful kids and so many of them:)

    So awesome that he is helpful. I have my kids help me with chores and I'm hoping that as they get older I"ll put more responsibility on them and less on me until they can do them alone!
