Who can remember having chores to do?
I remember mama made us do chores. I can't say we liked doing them. Back in those days we made $2 a week.
The day came when I started my home and chores were an everyday thing around the house. I was happy that I did have that early teaching.
A chore chart is an easy way to start teaching very young kids responsibility. The pic above is an example of some chores that are age appropriate.
For instance when kids empty the toy box, then it is their job to pick up the toys. In our house that was the rule. If we had to pick them up those toys they were put away for a period of time and not allowed to be played with. Or we took a favorite toy away for a few days.
Allowances didn't come until a later age.

Just For Today: I am grateful for the early teaching even when I didn't want to do something.
