Around our home, we believe parents do their kids a disservice if they're not given the responsibility of contributing to the household through chores. Kids that never have to lift a dirty sock or clear their place after dinner grow up to be selfish and expect the world at large to tend to their every whim. That's indulgent and impractical. On the other hand, kids that are given responsibility at an early age for tasks well within their capabilities learn to appreciate the work which goes into running a home. Those kids are more likely to appreciate the effort put into making a meal. Clean clothes in the closet don't just appear; someone had to wash, dry, sort and hang them.
There are now many clever solutions for the 'blind kitchen corner cabinet' available. Utilising this area for items that you don't need to access regularly is often the best solution. However, if you don't have the luxury of space then products such as a Lazy Susan (and the pull-out Lazy Susan) can greatly increase the accessible space. A wide range of other solutions are also now available such as sliding, swinging or expanding systems.
Our youngest kids can't tackle a full dishwasher or the laundry just yet. But they are old enough to put away the silverware and manage their underwear and sock drawer. I placed a couple of drawer organizers in our large kitchen drawers and used a permanent marker to draw an outline of each utensil type inside each slot. Now the kids can follow the simple code and put away the silverware into the drawer organizers without any help from me. I think they've even made it into a game, to see who can finish first.
