All of my kids have been doing chores for several years. That means that my boys empty the dishwasher, do dishes, clean bathrooms, vacuum and dust. This summer we've added sweeping and mopping the kitchen. One of these days I'll get serious about teaching them to do laundry. My older sister recommends that kids start doing all their own laundry by highschool.
The other day we were at a toy store that sells Ugly Dolls, and Skippy decided to make his own.
We got out fabric, needle and thread, and now Skippy can add sewing to his domestic skills repertoire.
I helped him some with the green one, but he did the brown one all on his own.
The plan is to make the next one using the sewing machine.
My goal is to grow competent men and helpful husbands. I think we're on our way.
