My kids do have chores...I guess I should haver asked about cleaning bathrooms...at what age is ok to do that? My kids wash windows put ldishes away and fold/put laundry away. Also keeping a clean room is a must in my house :)

5yo; set table, put laundry away, fold towels, pair socks and gather trash
8&9; clear table, load and unload dishwasher, make lunches for school, fold clean laundry, take trash to curb, bring cans back
11; sort and do laundry, move wash to dryer, remove clean clothing and fold, change bed linens, sweep floors, vacuum,
All of the above can make own beds, feed pets, and help with meal prep.

Age appropriate household duties. Your 5 YO can help with recycling, clearing table, taking laundry to appropriate areas of house...your 8 &9 year olds can do that, in addition to clearing table, helping with kitchen duties, yard duties...your 11 YO can do that as well as taking on a bit more responsibility.

Are you just now starting to give them chores? If so, be prepared for a lot of argument. Generally kids who haven't had chore duties and have them suddenly thrust upon them aren't very happy about it.

Good luck!
