Preventing Entitelment: A Gratitude Chore Game
A friend of mine posted this and she is a mother of FOUR BOYS! So I take her pretty seriously on the recommendations front. The article is detailed and has some good tips for involving kids in chores - not because it'll take work off your hands (lets face it, a 2-year old's "helping" isn't really, you know) but because it teaches them SO freakin' many great things and builds character and might even keep them busy for 45 seconds and yeah, cool concept.
Includes a great list of chores that are broken down into age appropriate lists if you're wondering what is reasonable to expect from your kiddos.
At them moment my Josh is just sitting his little tushie on the dishwasher door when it's open as a sign he'd like to be involved in the dishwasher game. Hmm... is that covered under warranty?
