Housework with Toddlers
Ready to start teaching your child to help around the house? Now is just the time to take advantage of her desire to imitate you. She may slow things down at first (don't be surprised if the housework takes at least twice as long with her "helping"), but in the long run, her participation will pay off in so many ways. For one thing, she'll feel proud to be a part of the family's responsibilities.
At this age, your child should be able to help you:
put laundry in piles
hold a dustpan
Just don't expect her to work alone — she'll need you there every step of the way.
