What is your least favorite household chore?
Do your parents expect you to help out with housework? Many teens are not only responsible for maintaining their own belongings and schedules, they also find themselves completing a plethora of chores from watching younger siblings to cooking for the entire family.
How do you help out around the house? What is your least favorite chore? Do you get rewarded for your help?

I hoover, dust around the house, wash and dry dishes, put washings on, hang washings out, bring washings back inside, iron (sometimes), run errands for my mum + dad, wash and hoover my car, keep my room tidy, and if my mum and dad are wanting a night out I’ll stay in for my younger brother.
Yeh, fair enough I get fed up doing chores, but who doesn’t?! It’s part of life if you want to stay in a clean environment, so therefore has to be done.
Besides, gives you a sense of responsibility and when you move out you’ll have to do it all for yourself anyways. Better to learn youngish than be thrown out into the world without a clue as to what to do…

I have twin sisters that aren’t even one yet so I do all the cleaning and cooking since my parents are always working. I also watch my sisters throughout the whole day and when in school I pick them up afterwards from daycare to watch them. I honestly don’t mind doing all this though.. I feel like it makes me a more responsible person. Like when I move out at some point in my life I’ll know how to do what I need to do to survive.
And no, I’m not rewarded.. unless you count respect and trust from my family that allows me to do pretty much whatever I want without my parents questioning me.

Cleaning the kitchen and dishes. No reward. Sigh…

Lol. There’s worse in life than chores, this post makes it sound like light labor is just terrifying.
The reward in doing chores/housework is accomplishment itself, a sense of responsibility (especially if you weren’t asked or told to do it) and a clean/tidy living space… or maybe that’s just me. =p

Hmmm, let’s see…There’s dusting, vacuuming, doing the dishes, cleaning the cat boxes [we have two], replacing the cat as well as dog food when the bowls get empty and many others. Though, I rarely get rewarded…which sucks, in my opinion. :/

Taking care of the dog, and cleaning its “surprises”. Yeah I guess I always get rewarded. XD
