5 Ways To Get Your Children to Help With the Household Chores

My Life (and Death) with Laundry



By Kristin Fast, Lifestyle Editor and In-House Wit-Cracker

With the rare exception, I do a load or two of laundry everyday… every. Single. Day. We are a family of 5, with two of those five being teenage boys… (teenage boys will wear three shirts in one day, but the same pair of pants for a week) which I am sure makes it clearer why I am engaged in a…

Laundry Hell

I have been relegated to Laundry Hell for all eternity. Or at least it seems that way. Perhaps "Hell" is not the place where I find myself. Perhaps it is a Laundry Limbo of sorts; at least with this option there is hope of future salvation. http://bit.ly/h2SqeW

The Ultimate Balancing Act!

I've written in my about me section about that balancing act all moms have to do.

Responsibilities beyond childcare…

While the primary responsibility of au pairs is to care for your children, au pairs can also help with “light household chores”. Beyond an expectation for a program that is focused on childcare, it is also a U.S. Department of State regulation that host families abide by when joining the program.

A Slippery Slope

As most moms can attest, as you add more children to your family, or even just as your first born gets older and busier and more opinionated, you start to let things slide. Things that when you first started out (not to mention before you had kids) seemed crucial to a happy life. Like bathing everyday. Or bathing your kids everyday. And cleaning the house or doing laundry. So my question for you is: what do you let slide?
