What household responsibilities and routines do your children have? Do they prepare any of their own food/drinks, what are their chores, what do you expect term to do for themselves?

Ds vacuums his room and front room, puts his dirty clothes in laundry basket, can load the washing machine, unloads the tumble dryer, puts his clothes away, lays the table, loads dishwasher, can bake cakes and cook pasta based meal, feeds cat etc. I try to get him to help with as much as possible but make it small fun jobs.
