I grew up with a crazy amount of chores and, while I agree with the idea, definitely don't want to come out of the gate with too much.
I look forward to hearing from others who are already at that stage. And what age is good to start? I guess I could start now with small stuff... they're 4/3/2.
We have a goal chart with stickers, the kids earn an allowance when a certain number of stickers are accumulated. They are excited to do their chores, and I'm thrilled to have the help! My oldest son is in charge of gathering and taking out the trash. My daughter is in charge of keeping the table cleared and wiped down after meals. My baby boy, they are 5.6, and 7, has an affection for the vacuum cleaner :) All the kids help out feeding, watering, and letting the dog out, as well as emptying their laundry baskets in the dirty clothes area and putting away clean clothes in their dresser. Plus, of course, they earn stickers for their everday stuff to do w/ hygeine and room cleanliness.
