The other day I was trying to pick up things around the house and I told my 6-year old daughter that she needed to pick up her toys and some random things that belonged in her room. She gave me a snotty look so I kindly informed her that I was her mother and not her maid. She quickly replied, “You are our maid”. I guess she was talking for her brothers too!
At first I was quite upset but it really made me think about the whole situation and why she would think that I was her maid. After thinking long and hard about her statement I have come to the conclusion that I obviously don’t make her do enough around the house. I have decided that she will have chores and that I will no longer be her maid.
If you have children that are around the same age as Taylor, what are some chores that you have them do around the house? At what age did you implement chores, etc? I would love any tips and suggestions that you can offer.
