When I ask the children to do anything around the house I’m sometimes met with a no. This could be anything from washing to recycling. However, if I say ‘who wants to go round the back of the house and wheel round the green bin?’ I will get two very willing volunteers. All of a sudden it’s the most exciting job there is to do.
The cardboard that’s been sitting in the utility room all week is in the bin within minutes and then there’s a fight about who’s going to wheel the bin back.
Do you dress up any household chores for the children?
