One of the biggest challenges in parenting a preschool-aged kid is teaching responsibility — without constantly nagging. Now that Phoebe’s almost four, we’ve decided that she’s ready to take on a few simple chores to learn the importance of pitching in and contributing to the family — plus, it’ll help me out since sometimes I feel like half my life is spent cleaning up after littles (anyone else?) Today we’re teaming up with Seventh Generation as part of our Living Green series to talk about kids’ chore charts. I’m a big fan of their nontoxic plant-based ingredients that also really get the job done, especially when it comes to cleaning with my kids and I’m more sensitive to what their little bodies are ingesting. Click through the slides to see what tasks are on Phoebe’s beginner’s agenda — and download the cutest kids chore chart that we created for you to print out and hang on the fridge!
