A list of chores to present to nine-year-olds or to add to the responsibilities they already have.
Preparing children for the reward means teaching them some responsibilities. This can include household chores, outdoor responsibilities, and perhaps how to take better care of themselves.
1. Make your bed
It’s a responsibility that would help save parents time and prepare your little ones for the real world. They may not understand this at first, but they will see why it was necessary by the time they move.
Fold your own clothes
Having to wash his own clothes would be too much of a responsibility for a nine-year-old child. However, they can help fold clothes and store them properly.
Help with preparing lunch
Whether it’s their lunch box at school or just a day spent at home, let them know this way they can choose the type of meal they would like to prepare.
Help with watering the garden
It helps them have an integration between spending time outdoors for fresh air and having a bit of responsibility while they’re there.
