I apologize for forwarding along a click bait link. Nevertheless, we totally agree at KWM that kids these days are often cut too much slack when it comes to pulling their own weight, especially if they experienced a life altering event like the loss of a Mom.

The goal should be to make their lives as normal as possible. They should, in our opinion, have the same responsibilities as all the other kids they talk to at school. Check out this list and see if your kids are keeping up.



P.S. — Full disclosure: I still have work to do on this list with Tiagan, who turns 11 this month. Let’s just say he’s not very fashion forward when it comes to picking out his clothes — kind of like ole’ Dad.
