Household Chores - Start from Young!

"Oh dear, it is ok, let me do it." Some parents would rather take over the household chores from their children. It may be because the parents do not want their children to mess up everything so the household chores upgrade into real "chores" for them!

We get Pei Pei and Hao Hao to be involved in tasks that we think they are capable of, so that they learn about responsibility as a family member, and to make them feel a sense of achievement as they contribute to the family.

Examples of household chores that they do at 4 to 5 years old:

  • Putting toys and books back to the shelves
  • Putting laundry into the laundry basket
  • Helping to secure the clothes on the poles using clothing pegs
  • Carrying the dried clothes from kitchen to bedroom
  • Folding simple clothing items
  • Carrying small bags of groceries
  • Helping to make coffee for us under our supervision

Though sometimes not perfectly done, and we have to pick up the mess (收拾殘局), we are happy that they volunteer to offer help!

What types of household chores your children are involved in?
