I thought i was late, haven't noticed my brother's home. Last night, while washing the dishes, i have witnessed a lovely moment. My sister in law and my brother, together with their three children, putting up their Christmas tree. One of the sight.that i can say, amazing. My brother holding up the tree coz he is quite tall, my sister in law checking the lights and the kids hanging the balls. And they are having fun. Not all kids whose.ages are the same with my bro's kids, would love to help their parents doing stuff and enjoying the task. Some will just watch tv or in front of computer or their gadgets. Or will lend a hand but you can hear complains. It made me say...my brother have raises his kids well, the way our father raised us. Do you still have little helpers at home? **By the way, aside from putting up the tree, their kids.also help in washing clothes and clean the house.

That is great that everyone helps in the running of the household. I'm sure they are lovely children and will grow up with a sense of responsibility.

My kids are all grown and my grandchildren live a couple of hours away so I don't have little helping hands but wish I did.

that's great that the kids help out. I don't have any kids of my own. but I do babysit one, and he helps me out a lot with picking up after himself when I have him. And I think I might have him help me put up my tree this year (if I decide to put it up)

I had no children, but I remember that both me and my younger brother loved to help our parents putting up the Christmas tree.

When my children were young it was a family activity putting up the Christmas tree. Now I put mine up alone since my kids have all grown but I do cherish those Christmases of long ago and how much fun it was to decorate

I think that is very good training. I think you can ask your brother to share about his training method. Children are often eager to help, especially when chores are made into a game, and parents are appreciative of their effort.

Your brother and sister-in-law raised them up well because they get to do them some chores at home like clean the house and wash the clothes .

Oh no, the kids at home don't know house chores. My mother had noticed that. She says maybe because they don't see their mother do house chores too.
