This is Princess J, as you can see, she is washing dishes in this picture. I made her wash her own and mine’s dirty dishes just so she will not forget how to do it properly. It has been a long time since she’d did that and she seemed to forget what I taught her before.
She is years older compared to me when I started doing this chore so I am kind of guilty for not pursuing her into washing dishes every time she is done eating. This is my way of teaching my kid to be responsible so she can take care of herself when she becomes an adult or when leaving for college.
Things she can do so far is showering herself (with occasional mommy’s nagging), fold undies and socks, hang her uniform in the closet, wash dishes and pick up some stuff from the floor. If I were to be strict with her, I would let her do all the things I do in this house but I don’t want her to think she is being punished.
