I HATE cleaning house. WITH A PASSION. I think part of it is because it never stays that way. As much as I HATE cutting grass, at least IF I cut grass, I can pull into the drive every day and see that it's been cut. The house never seems to stay that way. And then I get frustrated, and I stop wanting to do it.
Today I started a chore list for the kids. I've started it many times, but I never follow through, so hopefully I'll be able to stay on top of them this time. My kids are 11, 9 and 3 1/2. I know that they shouldn't have the same types of jobs, but I do think they should have jobs. Do you agree or disagree? If so, please tell me why. I keep going back and forth with whether or not this is the right thing to do, so any advice will be greatly appreciated. Another problem I have is, how much is too much or too little? Is there any such thing? Should my 3 YO have jobs also? If so, what kinds of things should I give her to do? These are their job lists so far. I'd really appreciate any input you might have. Thanks!
