Getting kids involved in chores

Linda Burzynski knows chores. After all, she's president of Molly Maid, a nationwide residential cleaning service.

Ms. Burzynski offers these tips to help parents get kids interested in cleaning:

*Delegate two or three age-appropriate chores to each child. Give them full responsibility for completing the task.

*Let kids know that snacks are OK; crumbs are not. Keep a Dustbuster handy.

*Teach kids cleaning shortcuts. A portable hair dryer can come in handy for quick dust jobs like cobwebs.
