Hey Mom, stop doing it all. Get the kids involved!

I get it.  Training is hard work and it is sometimes easier doing things on our own.  However, training children to help out at home is beneficial to both parent and child.  It is so easy for parents to burn out and become resentful because we do it all.  When we set expectations and train our children to help, it lays a great foundation for the future.  Listen to the below clip from my YouTube channel on this thought and don’t forget to subscribe.   Leave a comment and let me know how your children help out at home.  I would love to hear from you!

    This post encouraged me. This week I have had my 5 year old daughter helping out in the kitchen more. I’m thankful that she likes getting her hands messy. She is great at forming meatballs. She also coated all my chicken and eggplant with flour before frying. She is always so proud at dinner time about what she has made.

      Yes! I find that the children are more willing to try new dishes when they help to prepare it. Thanks for sharing all your daughter is doing at 5 years old.

    This is so true! I have thought about this myself! Every day before nap time and bed we clean up and it helps a lot and keeps the house so much cleaner and helps me not become resentful!
