Sue Radford has admitted that she had her children clean from an early age with a ‘chore board’.
22-year-old mum Sue Radford has revealed she loves her kids cleaning up early.
With a very busy household to run, it’s no surprise that the 46-year-old often feels overwhelmed with the number of tasks she has to do on a daily basis.
But it turns out even the youngest in the group are happy to get involved, with Sue telling The sun“Kids are really good at chores, taking out the trash, washing the dishes and generally helping out.
“I think they’ve realized that I can’t do everything and I need them to help me out a bit.
“Even Bonnie and Archie, who are only three and four, help out by putting away their toys and tidying up their rooms, which is a big help.”
Sue and her husband Noel, 51, are parents to Chris, 32, Sophie, 28, Chloe, 26, Jack, 24, Daniel, 22, Luke, 21, Millie, 20, Katie, 19, James, 18, Ellie, 16. , Aimee, 15, Josh, 14, Max, 13, Tillie, 11, Oscar, 10, Casper, nine, Hallie, six, Phoebe, five, Archie, four, Bonnie, three and Heidie, one.
In order to stay on top of things while Noel runs the family pie business, Sue has a strict routine where she does all her chores in the morning.
“I start by vacuuming all the floors, then I’ll get all the laundry out of the bedrooms and do the laundry,” she told the publication.
“Then I will mop all the floors and do the bathrooms, then I will continue with more laundry, drying everything as I put it away. It takes forever.
Although she once considered hiring a housekeeper to help her, Sue admitted she “likes” to do everything herself.
It comes after Sue revealed she has a ‘chore chart’ at home, which the kids have to follow every day.
Speaking on an episode of 22 Kids and Counting last week, she said: ‘I think it’s really important to help out even just doing a little work around the house.
The busy mum also previously admitted she does up to six loads of clothes a day.
“Recently everything has been upside down and it’s driving me really crazy,” she said last year.
“What’s with teenagers who get dressed and changed multiple times a day, their clothes aren’t even dirty and they just put them in the wash?
“I feel like I have a lot more than the teenagers, there are a lot of them in the house.
“They are so lazy, they do nothing, nothing to help.
“I feel like Cinderella. I just need to get out. I hope when I come back everything will be done. I quit, get me out of here!
