What your children should know how to do as they grow up
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - There's a delicate balance between over-parenting/having children dependent upon their mother and/or father versus teaching/letting children develop and learn on their own.

- Get themselves up and out of bed in the morning
- Make breakfast/pack own lunch
- Cook a basic meal
- Do laundry
