Every now and then my kids and I get into a battle about which chores are required and which are optional. When school started this year we sat down and had a family meeting about what was expected from everyone and when. I carefully explained that just because they were in school all day didn’t mean they weren’t still responsible for contributing to the daily household chores. And of course, school brings with it an entirely separate set of responsibilities. With only a limited amount of hours in a day we found it necessary to establish which of our list of jobs would be performed when.
The kids helped me make this list of things that had to be done everyday as a means of personally taking responsibility for ourselves.
