Helping dad around the house

If you have chores to do around the house such as gardening, cleaning, or maintenance, invite and encourage your kids to help but don’t force them into it as this could put them off.

  • Give them fun jobs to do, suitable to their ages and abilities.
  • Don’t use the children as your slave labour – work alongside them.
  • Invent games or competitions to get them involved and get the jobs done more quickly.
