Chores for toddlers can be entertaining and teach responsibility.
Being a mom of two (or more) can be a juggle! Feeding my little S and entertaining big brother E can be most challenging. I’ve found that a chore like swiffering is rewarding to mom and most of all your child.
To adults, a chore like swiffering can be a drag but to our little ones this can be a delight and exciting to take on the task of an adults job! (My son enjoys pretending he’s an adult. Here he’s getting the chance to do just that)!
Over time I’ve learned that even with me teaching him the “correct way” to complete a task or chore such as swiffering, it may not come out the way I hoped in my head. But, I’ve come to give up some control and be okay with the end result because I’ve learned it’s the process of doing that’s most important (even if he is just pushing around dirt). Best of all, he really does pick up dirt along the way!
This teaches him a sense of responsibility and feeling of accomplishment. In the end, he was so proud of the job he did. He held my hand and showed me all around house!
