Childhood Chores are a Predictor of Success
Last edited 24th January 2016

Giving your kids chores doesn’t make you into a slave driver or an evil parent – it’s setting your kids up with the skills that contribute to a happy and fulfilled life. Studies have found that children who began helping with chores at the ages of three or four years were more likely to later have good family and friend relationships, achieve success academically and in their careers, and to be self-sufficient.
