As long as you aren't treating them like slaves, they aren't going to resent you for helping around the house.

If your kids resent you it's probably for a whole other reason

^My guess is she's trying to say that if they ever in life resent you, then it won't be housework that made that happen

My siblings and I all started cleaning at the age of 5, obviously starting from the pretty basic things as we got older we did everything. My mum was mean about it and it basically caused me and my siblings to hate cleaning... so I’d say from my experience come from a positive note and encourage your kids

I wish my mother had made me help. I didn't have to do anything and while I like cleaning, I'm still a pretty basic, crappy cook.

I helped my mum and I don't resent her at all. My kids clean their own rooms, they clean their bathroom, toilet and playroom aswell. I obviously do a deeper clean but if they shit and there is skids they use the brush and clean it off. I do the washing but they put it all away. They load their dishes into the dishwasher. I don't have an issue with it and my kids have never complained about it.

There is nothing wrong with kids helping around the house. It's part of being a family unit & prepares them for the real world. I highly doubt that when they move out, that they will be able to afford to have someone clean their house. No point comparing your family to another, as everyone has a different point of view on how to raise their kids. (social media highlights that) It's more about how you feel about it. My daughter used to come home & say so so can do xyz & my reply was, " I'm sorry that you got the wrong mum."
