When it comes to getting your children to help with chores, there are a lot of factors to consider. How do you motivate your kids? Should you pay your children for doing chores? How young is too young to help? There’s also no shortage of opinions about which chores are appropriate.
There’s no such thing as a chore chart for kids that fit every family. Parents (of course!) are responsible for deciding what tasks their children are capable of doing. And while helping out around the house is a great way to build character, your children’s safety should never be compromised. As a parent, YOU should decide what cleaning chores to allow your children to do, and you should be willing to teach and supervise them.
Caution With Chemicals
You should also be aware that not all cleaning products are safe. Many contain toxic chemicals that are harmful to all of us: adults, children, and pets. You can read more about this in our blog posts Cleaning Products Can Cause Harm to Your Health: What You Can Do, and in What Cleaning Chemicals Does Castle Keepers Use and Are They Safe?
