I've posted before about how H isn't very strict when it comes to the s-kids cleaning up after themselves. He has come around to making them clean the basement where they spend 80% of their time playing the Wii. And the last time they were here he made them clean their room before they left.
Both scenarios are b/c I "encouraged" him to do so - nicely of course I just feel like it's teaching them responsibility. Not only that, but I think we should teach the kids to respect our property as we do, and cleaning is part of that - for us and them.
So is my thinking in line for an 8 and 10 year old? What/how do you all assign chores to kids of the same ages?
