Parental Guidance: Chores

Hello and welcome to Parental Guidance, The Avocado’s Weekly thread for parents, prospective parents, caregivers and other lunatics1 who think they have what it takes to raise some humans. Each week I, Corn, and/or Miss Rim will put up a thread with a discussion prompt and open the floor to all parents who may be looking for advice, sharing a fun experience, or just venting about how goddamn maddening this crazyass responsibility can be.

This week’s topic: Household chores

What’s the division of labor like around your house, now that kids are in the mix? Is there any difference in jobs distribution between before and after? Are any of your kids old enough to help out with the chores? Be honest, what’s the longest you’ve ever gone without cleaning up? Don’t forget to bring up other random topics too. Let’s get as non sequitur as possible this week.
