I have been talking about chores for a few weeks now and next week will be my final post about chore lists.
This week we are talking about our 13-16yr old children! This is a great age because they can do so much to help you with the household.
If you do not already have an allowance system set in place, this is a wonderful time to set one up.
They don’t need to be paid for everything they do, they are part of your family, and running a house takes work that they need to be a part of however you want to teach your children about earning money, giving, and how to become independent.
They will do best if you set them up and teach them and this is a great time.
Pay them when they do large jobs, emergency tasks (such as helping you clean up everything because an unexpected guest is coming), or just at the end of the week for a job well done.
Chores that your 13-16-year-old can do!
Clean out Fridge/Freezer
Help with Grocery Shopping
Wipe Down Baseboard & Walls
Oversee the Younger Children’s Chores (or at least inspect them)
I would love it if you would add it to the list. What chores do you have your 13-16 yr old do?
