Kids & Chores! Now what a mix, huh! We all strive to set aside chores for our kids to learn to be responsible and be a helping hand with in the family. Sometimes we have to be creative to get that done! I remember when my kids were young, they would love to help out. They always wanted to do the dishes, help with the laundry, take the trash out and vacuum. Funny how as they grow older those "things" they use to love volunteering to do, they start to hide from.
Have you ever used a chore chart? Goalforit! is a fun website where you and your children can create a chore chart specifically made for them!
