mommy moments

Parents should give their children tasks to do so they learn to become responsible. The results of a study conducted by the University of Minnesota showed that children who performed housework had better feelings of responsibility and self-worth years later. Children who feel good about themselves are more respectful of others.

Even if my son is only 3 years and 4 months old, he already knows how to put away his toys, but he does this only when he’s in a good mood. LOL! There are two household chores, though, that he would do anytime: dusting and sweeping the floor.

Does your kid enjoy doing housework, too?

Unfortunately my kids like the housework as much as I do...

happy mommy moments!


great job training Justine to be a responsible kid :-)! i am sure he will be a good kid because of his goodly parents :-)!


Kudos on teaching your boy to help out. I've had very little success with this thus far, lol. Not about to give up though. :) Sure, re link ex. Adding yours now!


so sweet of him!!! when my boys are way too young and they try to sweep the floor, I have to be on the lookout because they might find something on the floor that will end up to ther tummy. (^_^)


Keeping toys is always a good introduction to household chores. I did that with Evan too. As for other housework he prefers mopping than sweeping, maybe because he can play with water at the same time :)


Justin is so adorable with the duster and broom. I very much agree that kids should be taught kaagad on how to be responsible. By the way mommy, thank you for the birthday greeting :D


wow naman.. ang super bait ng anak mo Tet. The same with my kids when they were still young I started teaching them to be responsible. My little boy now knows where to put his dirty clothes and keeps his room clean. I am glad my daughter too is always helping me out in some works in the kitchen.

I agree Mommy Tetcha, for my kids experiencing it now specially my eldest & 'm really glad I did taught them at their very young age.Great job for training Justin habang bata pa sya.I'm sure he'll be very responsible in everything he do when he grow up.
