Getting the Kids to Help

Gravatar ImageBy Published on
Almost every working mom has dreamed of having hired help at some point. Unfortunately, hiring a personal chef or housekeeper is not economical for most people.

Kids, especially young kids, are often eager to help, though.

During mealtimes, harness their energy into something other than tearing apart the family room. Kids as young as 3 can tear lettuce, fold napkins or shake up the dressing for a salad; older kids can set the table, scrub vegetables or measure ingredients.

Not only does this help you get dinner on the table sooner, but gives you a chance to spend time with the kids and chat about your day.

After supper, enlist the kids to help clear the table and load the dishwasher.
