Children grow up so fast these days, I was reading age appropriate chore charts and can’t believe that Lee is put in the category of preteen age already (age 9-12). It said that children in this preteen age are capable of increasing responsibility where chores are concerned. Keep in mind that many children this age rely on continuity. Find a system that works for your family and do not change it without the input and support of the people it directly affects. Make sure that you factor in rewards and consequences and address those issues with your children. Let them know the consequences of not completing chores, as well as the rewards for fulfilling their responsibilities.
I have to say well put, as for Lee she gets allowance for doing her chores. She is saving to go to Paris, it looks like she has many years of saving to do. I guess Max is doing his chores also, he is a good watchdog.
Part of the reward was to take Lee out for a lobster treat. This was her first lobster, and I didn’t bring my camera. I’m glad that she was able to capture it with her Nintendo DSiXL.
I’m not a fan of pop-up flash but was really surprised of how well this image came out. Perhaps it was because I used the zoom lens and also taking the image from a distance.
