College Students & Chores – Home for the Holidays
Our sons started doing chores around the house beginning about the age of 10. They cleaned their rooms, vacuumed, unloaded the dishwasher, did their own laundry and took out the trash. Later on they were each assigned to clean a bathroom every weekend.
Now they are both in college, one is away living on campus and the other is at home commuting to campus. Tayair is home, therefore, it is expected that he continues doing his weekly chores, even doing some that were previously assigned to his brother.
With the winter break, Malik is home for the holidays and my expectation is for him to pick up where he left off, doing his weekly chores. I am sure he is balking and probably speaking things “under his breath” but we all know that doesn’t mean diddly squat!
What do you think, should a college student returning home for the holidays be expected to do their previously assigned chores?
