Show Notes

Are we helping or harming our kids by letting them off the hook when it comes to chores? Are there benefits to getting the whole family to help out, other than the immediate sharing of the tasks? Today we look at why and how to involve your kids in household chores.

When I think of chores from the perspective of my own childhood, I think of a schedule on the fridge for washing up, which we siblings fought over fiercely, keeping detailed mental checklists of who owed  who a night’s washing up.

I also look at the Montessori educational method and its applications in at-home household tasks and responsibilities.

In the next episode of Parents in the Know we will have a look at Pets and Children. Most of us without them longed for a pet as children, but only the right kind of pet. And then there is the dilemma some parents-to-be have, when they realized that their beloved pet may not be suitable for a newborn baby. We will investigate the benefits, the risks and the relationships, between Pets and Children, next time on Parents in the Know. Thank you so much and happy listening!
