Monday Mommy Tip #5

Teach your children to do chores!

As a parent, I feel I have the responsibility of creating a successful member of society.  Therefore, it is my job to teach my son how to be responsible and take care of himself.  Chores are a good way to teach responsibility.

The chores my 6 year old must do:
1.  Jude must clean up after himself after he eats.  He must place his dirty dishes in the sink and throw away or recycle any trash items.  
2.  Jude must practice the piano daily.
3.  Every Sunday, Jude must wash and dry his own laundry.

That's right; I have my 6 year old son doing his own laundry!  If my kid can do it, so can yours!
