Does your preteen/ have chores they are responsible for on a daily/weekly basis or are they just expected to help when you ask?

Ari needs to keep her room clean daily, help clean up the living room, take care of laundry -get it to the hamper out of her room and her sisters, make her bedm pick up her dishes. Other random things she's pretty good about most days.

mostly he is expected to help where needed. He does have a few weekly chores, but I use what i call chores on demand which means if I ask him to do something, he needs to do it

T knows what she needs to do already but she is also expected to help out when asked.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

My kids have to keep their rooms clean & in addition, DD has to make sure the living room & dining room are picked up - DS is responsible for feeding the cat & dealing with the litterbox, he also has to keep up with the dishes and take the trash out. They must also both help when asked to do other things.

Thank you Katie (.:Shortcake:.) for my beautiful siggy!!

I wonder if I put to many chores on the kids. They have three every day. The list is on the fridge. It changes. Somethings are really quick and easy like cat food clean up(The cats eat the food outside of the food bowl. why I don't know but its annoying lol so thats one chore) They do have to help if its needed.

They just got off of a week of not watching TV because they were not doing their chores. They did some major cleaning/chores.

I wish I could get my oldest to understand that if she did her chores she would be rewarded with volleyball and other things. she just thinks everything is handed to her on a silver platter. That thinking ticks me off to no end.

I don't have an issue with David and chores, but I do have a hard time getting him to understand if he follows rules he will get to do things he wants and have more freedoms as he's coming in to his teen years.

He is just expected to help when asked. He does have to empty the dishwasher every day (just about) and feed the cats every morning, but otherwise he doesn't have any other "set" chores. He also doesn't get an allowance, though.

Click on my blinkies!!

**thank you SO much to tasha_mae for my beautiful siggy
and to CupcakeJamie and Niamh ૐ for my blinkies!!**
