Since we moved to the small flat, I have asked my son to help me with housework. Principle: if he can do something, let him do it even not as well as mum. I ask him to prepare vegetable, throw away the rubish and put away his toys and books after playing time, and fold the laundry. He seems to be fine with the chores except the thing with rubbish. He says it is dirty. But I still force him to do it. A bit cruel :-).
