When children should start doing chores

As children grow up, they need to start taking some responsibility in the household.

In the house, they need to start pulling their weight and helping around the house.

What is the age-appropriate time to start your children on chores?

Examples of chores for children:
Mowing the lawn
Washing dishes
Washing the car
Mop the kitchen/house
Cooking and baking

A chore. I see a chore as something that benefits the rest of the house as well.

I've tried so many systems hey. And there's like a point system, and if you get points, you gonna get money. And I've realised they'll only do chores to like points.

The older he (Alakhe) gets he can do things like sweeping. Where he can't hurt himself.
