I find that summertime is a great time to help my kids learn new chores and add them to their regular chore list. During the school year, they’re often super busy with homework, sports, music lessons, etc., and they push back pretty hard when I want them to start emptying the dishwasher in the mornings, or take more responsibility for their own laundry.
During the summer, though, there is time to learn and practice these new jobs, and often by the time the Fall rolls around, these have become routine and it’s not a big deal to roll them into a regular school week.
This summer, I am really hoping to get them both cooking more and helping with meal preparation. I also want to add dishes and laundry to their chore lists (the other chores below are already regular daily chores for my kids).
