Dad hack #4— Train the kids early to help clean 🧼 🧽 around the house (it gives me time to post more #dadhacks 🙂)
This summer my wife and I taught our kids how to:
🧺 Fold the laundry
🗑 Take out the garbage
🧽 Load the dishwasher
😜 Battle the shenanigans of their 18 month old sister
It took a lot of time, patience, modeling good behaviors, and reteaching but I’m glad we did.
Teaching kids chores result in:
✨Learning a mop was not something you hit your brother in the head with (my daughter may or may not have done this)
✨ More gratitude
✨Instill a good work ethic
How did chores play a role in your childhood and later professional work?
What was your favorite chore (mine was drying the dishes— my brother and I usually made my sister wash 🙂)?
