Teaching your child to help with chores at home is not an easy task. However, if you start teaching your child from a young age, some experts say that it makes the task easier later on. Here are some household chores that can help develop your preschooler.

Start early but simply

You can generally start assigning chores to your preschooler from about the age of four. The chores you choose should be simple tasks such as picking up toys after playing, folding napkins for the dinner table, or putting away clothes. You should ease your child into these tasks, so start by helping him or her the first few times and then encourage your child to try completing them on his or her own. He or she will learn a sense of accomplishment and independence.

Create a chore timetable

By creating a chore timetable, everyone in the house knows what is required and when. This should include your preschooler as well. He or she will feel part of the effort and want to help. This will also teach your child about accepting responsibility.

Assign chores to your child’s personal space

Having your child maintain the cleanliness of his or her own room is much easier than other chores. This instills a sense of pride as you teach your child to look after his or her own space. Your child will want to enjoy success so consider putting stickers on the charts when he or she completes each task.

Some other chores to consider

These are some additional simple chores for your preschooler: making the bed, taking laundry to the laundry room, helping to feed your pets, cleaning up spills, or dusting low tables that are clear of items.
