Kids Love Chores

(Really)

OK, parents. You may not relish the idea of housework. But you're not doing your kids or their future roommates or spouses any favors by giving them a chore-free childhood. Besides, children (well, at least younger ones) are eager to help.

A few tips: Be specific. Unless absolutely necessary, don't redo children's work. Keep a regular routine. Praise their work.

Following are age-appropriate chores children can do:

  • Ages 2 to 3: Sorting laundry by color. Tidying their shoes in the closet. Tearing lettuce. Wiping up spills. Picking up toys. Pouring pet food into bowls.
  • 3 to 5: Setting the table. Putting folded clothes away. Watering plants. Putting away clean silverware.
  • 5 to 9: Making bed. Folding towels and washcloths. Raking leaves. Pulling weeds. Dusting. Clearing the table.
  • 9 to 12: Collecting and taking out trash. Vacuuming. Washing the dog. Folding and putting away laundry.
