Absolutely! 15yo ds has to make his bed and tidy his room before he can go out or play the pc. He also has to empty the dishwasher daily.
13yo dd has to vacuum twice a week, walk the dogs and has full responsibility of her four cats and all their daily needs.
The younger two aged 8 and 9 have to make their beds and tidy their rooms before using the pc or going out to ride their bikes ect and they also do little things I ask like taking the clothes off the line etc

I have a 15 year old DS. Every day he has to unpack the dishwasher, bring the washing in, feed the dogs and take the rubbish out. He's pretty helpful and sometimes offers to fold as well. I don't do pocket money as such.. I put credit on his ph once a month and if he wants to go to the movies or something I give him money.
Edit... he also has to clean his room, make his bed and change the sheets and re-make the bed..
Im pretty lucky with DS he hates mess in his room I haven't had to tell him to clean it for at least 5 years

He helps me bring shopping in from car.
He has to put his clothes in machine and plates up at sink.
If he cooks ( he likes cooking) he has to wipe down benches and stack dishes ready for washing.

My SS just turned 14 and his chores include:
- making his bed
- keeping his room tidy
- folding his clothes and putting them away
- collecting any of his stuff from around the house and putting it back where it belongs
- setting the table
- when DH or I cook, he helps; when he cooks (he's another one that likes cooking) he cleans up any mess he makes as well
- bringing his dirty plates/glasses to sink, and putting in the dishwasher if it's empty

im must have been a bit of a hippy. when my children were teenagers, I only had one job for them and that was to get their dirty clothes into the laundry. they used the pc for school related stuff only, this is in the dark ages with no facebook and whatever. I cooked for them and cleaned the kitchen, their rooms were their responsibility. if I had visitors I closed the bedroom doors. I did think i might be raising a bunch of lazy pigs, but they can all keep house quite well on their own now, and with their partners and children. marie.
