Lately, we've been talking about adding a chore to the list - namely, washing his clothes as well as putting them away. Sean's initial reaction probably wouldn't have been much different if I had suggested throwing all the electrical appliances out and reverting to a more simplified lifestyle.
I've talked to other parents IRL and discovered that Sean's chore list is about average for his age. Sean gets an allowance when the chores are completed correctly, though I'm finding that is less common. What chores, if any, are assigned in your home? Are chores tied to allowance or completely separate? I can't wait to read your responses.
