Our household would fall apart without everyone pitching in. When we all do our part, the work gets done quickly and without confusion over whose job it is. By completing the chore lists early in the day, we are free to work on schoolwork and other things during the day. We can take a trip to the library in the afternoon, or we can bake cookies. We can go on a hike or play outdoors. With the work not hanging over our heads, we can have fun time together as a family.
