In our household of three (including my dad), my husband and I share the chores. How about in your household, who do you share the chores with?

I live alone. I do my manual laundry, clean my room, and wash the dishes.

Wow! Manual laundry? Like wash your clothes with your own hands? So you share a house with someone? or a group of people?

@funkeyguhl Yes, I just did that few hours ago. I rent the whole room in a ladies' dormitory.

@rina110383 wow! I salute you! I have a hard time doing that. I am not sure if it is because I am washing my clothes the wrong way or the soap does not agree with my skin because after doing manual labor, I end up having a lot of bruises on my hands - weird. I see. Do you also have your own toilet? As I have heard, the ladies' dormitory is always busy.

My husband and I share the chores most of the time. My children do help sometimes as well. As they are growing up now, so I plan to start delegate some simple chores to them according to their age slowly.

Yes, I think we started out young too. My mom would give us chores to do before and after dinner. That is a good plan :)

@funkeyguhl I didn't. My mom almost did all the household chores and we just helped out once in a while. I don't think it's good to do that, as I think children should learn and have the sense of taking care of the home together as a family.

@kaka135 This is very true. It gives them the ability to appreciate how a meal is being prepared. Besides, it is too expensive to get help these days that we all need to contribute

My husband does the same thing or vice versa. Let us say I just finished arranging our room, I will find that he will do that too in the next few days. As for me, when he mops the floor, I tend to repeat it because I can still see some areas where it was not mopped (is that bad?)
