But his mother, bank officer Deborah Lim, said Sean now washes his own shoes and dishes, and will even ask for more chores.
It happened after his pre-school, PCF Sparkletots Preschool @ Tampines East Block 261, started a project called Chores 4 Charity last month. This is where about 140 children from the pre-school were given the task of raising money by completing household chores at home, or for friends and relatives. This is like the concept of Scouts Day.
In under two months, the children raised more than $3,000.
Ms Lim, 32, who was proud of the initiative, said: "Even though the project is over, Sean still continues to do chores at home. He also learnt about the concept of money."
.. as well as responsibility and sharing.
