I was wondering when to have a child help out around the house and with things that he could be doing himself. My ss is 4 and he doesn't do anything for himself. Everything is done for him. The only thing that his father doesn't do for him is feed him. He feeds himself with the food cut into small pieces. Other than that nothing! Boyfriend won't even attempt to have his son try to brush his teeth, pick out clothes, dress himself, bath himself. Nothing! I'm not if I'm wrong or if he is wrong. My son at the age of 4, I was teaching how to do things, but still helping him. I would even let him help me with cleaning little things around the house. Can you tell me what type of chores a 4 year should have. Should they be picking up their own toys? Should they be attempting to do self-care things on their own?
