Works for Me: Chores

Ok, this sounds like a real no-brainer: CHORES! Teaching your children to clear the table after they finish a meal to cleaning up their toys, chores do more than just help the child.......hello.......less work for the parents!!

Matt is starting kindergarten in a month (I know -- can't believe it either) and we told him along with becoming a "big kid" comes more responsibilities.

We already had an established routine every morning: breakfast, brush teeth, change clothes........

In comes making your bed!!!!

One morning I spent time teaching Matt the correct way and every morning since he's been diligent to do it. I can already feel our school year mornings becoming less hectic which means less stress on mommy. We need all the help we can get, right???
