  1. That’s an excellent list for small children. My little ones like to be involved in the household activities, but not so much about their toys. We are still working on it 🙂

  2. I ran a Montessori School for years. The way I fell in love with Montessori education was because of the practical life school that kids are empowered by doing from such a young age. Thanks for reinforcing the concept!

  3. This is so wonderful! My brother & I used to do things like this with my parents when we were younger, & I think it really made a profound impact on us as we grew up!

    1. Thank you. I never did any work in my childhood and am still struggling with normal household chores. I want my daughter to learn things from her childhood to lead a successful life.

  4. It’s so good to get kids started on these habits. Kids really do want to be involved, and it’s important to start them on doing chores from an early age.

  5. I love this post so much! Many times we don’t give our toddlers the credit that helping is so good for their overall development. My daughter the other day came in the bathroom when I was cleaning it and wanted to help scrub the toilet. Was so cute to watch her do it with me!

  6. Wish I’d seen this sooner. Mine are 6 and 8 now. Teaching them these things from the get go would have been best. Great advice!
