I never set out to give my toddlers chores to do. You might be thinking, "That's too young! Toddlers can't do chores!" That's what I thought too, that is until I was constantly tripping over my boys while trying to do my own household chores.

Let's face it, toddlers want to help mom, even when mom doesn't want or need help. But what better way to teach your toddlers to do chores than letting them help mom?

The number of chores you give your child to do will depend on your child. Some kids want to help more than others. At this age, the important thing is to teach them to clean up after themselves, not to try to get them to clean the entire house.

One of my sons is not interested in helping me pick up toys. He helps me for a minute then moves on to something else. However, he loves helping me with laundry and unloading the dishwasher.

I completely agree, but it seems like they only want to do what they see you doing. As soon as you ask them to clean up their own stuff, the games over.

Hi, I'm a mom of four kids, and a homemaker. I have a blog where I've shared how I juggle four kids, cooking and cleaning - I get my kids and the husband to help out.

The story's at www.valtay.blogspot.com - "Breezing through a handful of kids".
