31 Days of Good Habits~ Day Twenty-One

Today we're dividing out table chores.  Keep in mind, we want to stretch our children and children thrive with responsibility.  At the same time, we in no way want to burn out our children.  Keep the jobs appropriate to their age and ability.

In our house,  Havilah and Ella clear the table after the meal, Bethany washes the table and scrapes the plates and Lydia washes the "eat on" dishes (plates, cups, silverware).  These jobs are able to be completed in a short amount of time so no one gets bogged down.

Table Chores helps the house to continue running smoothly even after a crazy meal!
