If your kids can walk, they can help. As you raise your children, think of ways to nurture responsibility and independence.  To make it easier, start small and  simple. Choose a cabinet to store unbreakable dishes and then let your kids unload the dishwasher. Let them help you! Praise them by saying, “Wow, that was a huge help. I like when you unload the cups, want to try the forks?” “I knew you could do it!” Your praise is powerful and will fuel their desire to help–a win/win for you and their healthy development.
