Why Giving Kids Chores Works



I’m a big supporter of giving kids chores. Even my students have to apply for a classroom job as part of our class economy.


A new study says the key to raising successful kids could be making sure they help out around the house.

If getting your children to help with chores is tough, you’re not alone.

A recent survey found that 82 percent of parents did chores growing up, but only 28 percent require their kids to help out.

One reason for the shift is an emphasis on extracurricular activities, which may have caused making the bed to fall by the wayside. Many kids are just too busy these days.

But chores are still one of the most important predictors of future success, teaching self reliance and responsibility, as well as empathy. So don’t give up, even when your kids fight back.
