Children and Chores

The Surprising Impact of Chores on Kids’ Futures

by Elizabeth Crary, M.S.

Why parents should make the effort to involve children in household tasks, and how this effort can pay off both short-term and in adulthood is detailed in this easy-to-read guide. Based on research that documents how doing chores makes kids more responsible and more successful in many ways as they grow up, Children and Chores spells out:

  • What children can be expected to do at different ages
  • How to introduce chores
  • How to increase your expectations as children mature
  • What to do when children resist taking on chores
