I thought of chores that met two requirements:
Perfect! I came up with a list, wrote each chore down on a cute piece of paper and put them in a cylinder container that says “To Do.” I also have a timer (to set the 30 minute limit) and another cylinder container that says “Done.”
At first, my biggest hurdle was to cut back on our precious homeschooling time, but then I realized that by including him in the chores, he is not only learning, but he is enjoying himself, he is contributing to our family and he is becoming a well-rounded individual. So, someday, when he goes off to college or gets married, he will know how to dust, fold the laundry, put laundry away, fold cloth diapers, fold kitchen rags, unload the dishwasher, etc.
