A letter ( about her room chores ) to my 12-y-o daughter.
since you don't know exactly what to do
I will explain it carefully.
There are things that need to be done at least
once a week:
- Put everything in order, books, clothes, other objects.
(that means, each item must have its own place,
that is not the chair or the trunk, or the whole desk)
- Dust the desk, the shelves, and every horizontal surface.
- Do the bed.
- Sweep and mop the floor.
And if I ask you to do some other chore,
it is not because I enjoy to annoy you,
It is because I need you to do it,
because I can't do all by myself.
You know, living together,
everyone has to contribute to the good
functioning of the whole,
including tiding and cleaning.
I love you.
P.s.: I don't think I'm asking you too much....?
