Hi Xin li,
Thank you so much for your feedback and ideas! I love them.
But as I mentioned to Estela Kennen below... I think there isn't really an accurate age group. The main goal is to make these habits. So it's not like they're supposed to do their laundry at 3 or fix a lamp at 6... it's more about the concept of responsibilities. Same way we teach them about professions to help them dream and find their interests. This is about the bigger picture. Instead of making girls play house and boys play firefighter, this is making them play human in a society. This is not supposed to teach them an immediate activity or action. This is about reinforcing habits, healthy habits, and as we've all read and also heard from the experts in the webinar, kids learn, absorb so quickly we even underestimate their ability to learn. I want to change the way we teach our kids how to behave in a society, and most likely, we don't even realize the information we are transmitting. That's why this book is not about an immediate action, is about the concept of responsibility. And the fact that the sentences and words used are so simple, it can be read to anyone, by anyone. :)

Thank you all so much for commenting though!!! I love that we are talking about it!!! :)
