That's great that your boys help with the dishes, Lisa. At what age did that start? I really think my boys could pitch in more and dishes would be a good place for them to start.

We have DW, although they both have to pitch in with handwashing at Boy Scout camp so I know they CAN do that if needed. They started with the DW prob about 3yrs ago (ages 8 & 11) with just unloading the clean dishes.

Probably about a 2 years ago, we had Ben start loading because it takes a little more strategy to get it all in there and then Alex unloaded. At the beginning of this summer we went to one kid loading & unloading and the other one doing laundry.

We try to gradually increase the difficulty of the chores as they get older. Than is now in charge of setting and clearing the table with big brother supervision and fills the cats' self feeder when needed. He will probably take over feeding the dogs with supervision once school starts.
