Some things I do the same, but some I do different. I have come to realize that some of the things I hated actually made me who I am today, a better person than I would have been.
I do have them gather dirty laundry and sort, fold and put away their clean laundry.
(I don't make them wash their own laundry like I had to.)
I let them make sandwiches and put together their lunch. My 9 year old is allowed to use the microwave for corndogs.
(I don't make them cook for themselves. I learned how to cook this way.)
I let them watch tv but only when it is pouring down rain.
(I was never allowed to watch tv.)
