Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

10 Year Old - Chores - Too Much Work?

0 answers
My boys are 10 and 3 and my daughter is 5. I'm concerned that I'm asking to much of my ten year old. He is responsible for loading/unloading the dishwasher after dinner every night, taking out the trash, keeping his room clean, and doing his own laundry. Are these chores within reason? Can someone with some parenting experience please advise what chores they have their own children perform? My three and five year old clean their room when asked but that's about it. Thanks in advance for any advice.
