Faithfulness in My Chores ~ with Link Up

Something my children often hear me say is, “I don’t live alone, so all these things aren’t mine. You live here too, so you can help keep our home clean and tidy.”

I’m a firm believer that our children need to be taught responsibility and housekeeping.

Yes, housekeeping. ย I don’t know what God’s plan for either of my children is, and so they both (my son and my daughter) need to know how to keep a home clean. After all, I don’t want to go visit them, and know I didn’t teach teach them how to clean up after themselves.

In order to teach responsibility I must give them opportunity to be “in charge” of certain tasks. Even if they aren’t fond of what they’re assigned. Their future may hold a job they won’t be thrilled to do.

Responsibility is not based on liking what you’re assigned/asked to do.

My children are given specific chores to do, but they are also taught to be ready and willing to help with anything they’re asked.


Last year I began paying my children a monthly allowance for their chores. This reward also allows them to learn how to wifely spend their money, and that saving is important in getting things they really want.

My son has purchased a remote control train set, and he joined the Lego MBA club using his monthly allowance and money saving skills.

My daughter takes after me more than I’d like in this area. Her money burns a hole in her pocket. She will find whatever she likes that is in her price range, and buy it. “What’s the use of saving?” could be her motto. ๐Ÿ™

In continuing to focus on teaching faithfulness to my children, this year I will also be teaching it through their chores.

    I loved the way one of our families is teaching about money. They are required to help during the week when asked. Their allowance must be split – 1/3… spend, save, and give. What a great way to encourage good money habits.

    Love this! Yes, my kids always had chores when they were little. I started when they were old enough to take toys out of their toy box. At cleanup time I’d sing a cleanup song and take their hand and guide them in putting their toys back in the box. Of course, being babies they didn’t really “get” it yet, but eventually they did as they grew! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    My seven year old LOVED the rubber gloves I bought him. He had so much fun washing the dishes with them, lol!

    No, we never paid an allowance for chores. My husband and I don’t get paid for the things we do around the house so we didn’t pay our children either. However, we did have certain “jobs” that they could do if they wanted to make some money, such as scooping the doggy-doo and washing the car and things like that. Thanks for hosting today!

      It really is best to teach them to clean when they are young isn’t it? I take care of a 1 yr old and I’m starting to have him come sit and help me clean up his toys even now! ๐Ÿ™‚ My kiddos don’t like doing the dishes, but they are pushing through it ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for stoppin by and chatting! Blessings! ๐Ÿ™‚
