Youngsters have a hard time these days, keeping up with school work and the latest trends but here are 5 chores your 5 year old should be doing at home.
Helping with the dishes
Five-year-olds thrive when they are able to complete a task that they are good at. A busy household, especially a child orientated one may still be using a range of plastic utensils and cutlery. If this is the case, then there is no reason for your child/children not to be washing them up. I suggest congregating a good pile enabling plenty of practice. If however, your children dine with fine china then do get them into the habit of taking their own plate to the kitchen once they have finished a meal.
