Yes, My 4-Year-Old Does Chores and No, She Isn’t Always Rewarded For Them

The other day I posted an image of my daughter’s chore chart on Facebook alongside with a photo of her swiffering. Many parents eagerly clicked “like” and said how great it was that I have my young daughter actively taking care of the home she lives in. Of course, I had a few other people say how long her list was and how it was “way too much for a young kid to do.”

On the list her chores are:

Bring in the mail
Clean & set plate
Put away shoes when you get home
Put dirty laundry in hamper
Help mom fold laundry
Help put laundry away
Swiffer play area
Wipe down bathroom sink with mom’s help
Dust with mom’s help
Make bed
There are no consequences if she DOESN’T do her chores, and many are ones in which she helps me rather than does the chore alone.
