I figure if a child can hit a home run, he can be responsible for some honest to goodness chores. Real chores, not just those pretending-to-help-when-he-feels-like-it chores. Little Guy takes out the bathroom trash, he carries dirty clothes to the hamper, he clears and scrapes his plate, and now...he sets the table.
Not looking for perfection; just contribution!
Meanwhile, this sweet thing is still rightly in the business of creating chores. And he does so very well at it!
