There are certain things that I (and I'm sure my mum) don't remember from my childhood. Things that you wouldn't even think were important. Until you're staring at an entire jug of milk spilled at the feet of a helpful (almost) 3 year old who was just trying to pour herself some milk.
When exactly did I start pouring my own milk? That's one of those things. Also, when did I start having a bath by myself, brushing my own teeth and picking out my own clothes? Not exactly earth shaking events; I suppose that's why they didn't register so much.
I suppose, what I'm basically asking here is this: should I still be hopping up every two seconds to get them refills of things and grabbing extra forks, or can I start making them do it? Because I'm just getting into this book here and it's a pain in the ass to have to put it down every five seconds.
Seriously though, at what age do you think kids should start taking up some minor responsibilities?
Because I could really use some input.
