Less obvious chores for kids: Kids are great at doing jobs that are difficult for adults, like cleaning baseboards. Tweens can be good at organizing, so have them clean out drawers and toy bins. I have my kids wipe down doorknobs and light switches, empty garbage cans and sweep floors. Small children can shake rugs and help dust. Expect your children to participate in family cleanup projects like yard work. Sometimes jobs done less often, like dusting blinds, can even seem fun.
so often, children are punished for being human. children are not allowed to have grumpy moods, bad days, disrespectful tones or bad attitudes, yet we adults have them all the time. None of us are perfect and we must stop holding out children to a higher standard of perfection that we can attain ourselves
