For some reason, it took me a long time to realize that it wasn’t just for my benefit that I give my kids some responsibilities around the house, but for their benefit as well. They need to learn how to do jobs, and do them to the best of their ability, and this will benefit them their entire lives.

  1. I’ve always believed that kids should help with chores for the reasons you’ve listed and to free up some of your own time. With three kids I would have gone crazy trying to keep the house clean if they didn’t help.

  2. My kids both have chores they are responsible for and have since they were quite young! I think it’s very important! Thanks for sharing at our Mommy Club Linky Party! I can’t wait to see more ideas and projects that you have!
