Now that Maddie is getting older and really understanding instructions, I’ve started a small “chore” list for her.
While some may think 21 months is too young for chores, I believe instilling these habits at a young age helps to facilitate routine, discipline, self reliance, and accountability.
Plus, she loves when I give her easy tasks that she can quickly complete. It helps us engage and builds her self confidence. After all, we plan on raising a Wonder Woman who believes in herself!
Our very small list of chores includes:
- Helping to pick up her laundry and throwing it in the hamper.
- Picking up her toys when we’re done in a room.
- Feeding Blitzen (this one she started on her own)
- Throwing away diapers
