Chores by age chart

Chores by age chart, I remember when we started my niece on doing chores to help out, she loved helping me with the dishes and laundry.
Chores for Kids
Each school year, chores change for each child based on their grade and maturity level. As a mom, you know what your child can or can’t handle. Middle school girls can do their own laundry…middle school boys? That’s questionable. And I always have to remind myself, don’t fret if they do a horrible job with a task. Have patience and show them how to do it – they will get it eventually.
Lastly, don’t give in when they whine or complain. The earlier you start, the more normal it is for them to help out around the house.
Here are a few chores:
