|Remaining November leaves|
|helping with fall chores!|
If you allow them to jump into the chore, get muddy, and make a mess they'll have fun and forget that it is a job! Encouraging the results of their work when they're young and the quality is not so hot leads to:
keeping your expectations realistic
keeping their enthusiasm high
and later allows you to further encourage higher standards in everything they do.
Please remember that family chores done together increase family cohesiveness. Have fun even when working hard!
