Chores teach kids important life skills and that the whole family pitches in to make the household work. When can they start? Toddlers love to help, so let them!
They can: Put clothes in the hamper, wipe up spills, throw trash in the garbage can, put toys in bins, bring items to you, or brush pets.
Does 2 seem too young for chores? Actually, it’s the perfect time to start. When toddlers complete simple tasks, they feel capable and practice motor skills. Offer lots of praise for their efforts.
