Chores are a daily part of life that we must all learn. In a family-style environment such as TK, it is natural that the children are expected to help with chores where they are able. The attitude around here is that being “allowed” to do a chore is a privilege, and a sign of being considered responsible and mature. The younger children pine for the day they are old enough to do chores! In fact, in our home, one of the worst punishments that can be given is to “fire” a child from the privilege of doing a specific chore! We do not assign meaningless, busywork chores, but rather chores that are truly necessary for the functionality of TK. The result is a feeling of accomplishment, teamwork and camaraderie!
