Do Chores


Having a system for household responsibilities spreads out the work instead of having it all fall on one person (you know who!).

Try keeping a chore jar with slips of paper for kids to pick which chore they'll do that week, such as taking out the trash. Print out this chore chart to help your family stay on task.
