77. How do I manage chores with multiples?
one mother put it, when one member of the family doesn’t do his
or her fair share, that person disrespects the whole family. The most
popular consensus is starting the children helping around the house as
early as possible (age 2) with very simple chores. Each child should be
assigned age appropriate tasks, then increase the children’s responsibilities
as they get older. Some families have found unique and fun ways to organize
the chores and even reward chores well done. They range from charts to
index cards, rewards, and rotating chore system.
Many innovative programs are also available online like the House Fairy.
