age-appropriate chores for kids

Author: one tough job

Kids as young as two are capable of doing chores around the house. Science has now proven what many moms and dads have known all along, chores are good for kids. Chores give children a chance to learn responsibility at an early age by doing small tasks to help around the house. This sense of responsibility does not only apply to keeping the house clean, but also translates to other parts of their lives.

Doing chores also strengthens the bond between child and parent, as they learn to feel a greater sense of obligation for their home. This connection helps them to persevere through tougher times, resulting in happier, healthier children.
