We don't have assigned chores at our house. We have 'family work' and everyone helps. I'm sure I do more than anyone else, but part of that is because some just has to be done by mama. My olders can and do just about everything except breastfeeding the baby of course LOL They are capable at laundry, cooking, cleaning, farm chores, etc. I do most of the cooking, but mostly because I have more 'vision' for meals than they do. They can do a meal if I give them a recipe or direction, but can't pull together something from the fridge like I do. We eat entirely from scratch, so that has a higher learning curve for cooking.
Dad is home only on some weekends as he works out of town. He pitches in, but I try to not have it feel like he's working the whole time he's here, as I'd rather have him play with the kiddos on the weekend. We just all work together to get it done. I've found that with assigned 'chores' kids get that 'it's not my job' mentality and don't want to help with other things. We usually do a big clean-up the day Dad is coming home, so we can play as much as possible when Dad is home.
How are chores divided up at your house? Mom? Dad? Children? How do you decide? If you're not doing it the way you'd like to, what is the way you'd like to do it?
