Kids need to learn their responsibilities early on. Teaching them what they can do to help in the house, for example, can be done at about the age of four or five. From simple things like picking up toys to throwing wrappers in the trash can, they can learn gradually through constant reminder and encouragement given in a nice way.
In terms of saving energy, kids need to know as well that they can do simple acts to help mom cut electricity bills. This is normally taught in school so they should already know this. The trick is to avoid doing a lecture all the time. Instead, tell them their duties in a nice way that they will listen to you or better yet, do it in a fun way.
