Why Don’t We Give Our Kids Chores Anymore?
This week will be spent talking about the importance of children doing household chores. The interesting thing is that it seems overall families don’t prioritize their children doing chores. Why is this?
There are many reasons for this but it seems that the main reason is time. We are all very busy from adults to children in the home, our schedules are jam-packed. The priority of chores has fallen by the wayside. It also takes a lot of time put in by the parent. It takes time to train your child how to do the chore. It takes time to inspect the chores and make sure that they are done to your standard. It also takes time to correct mistakes, as well as time to cheer when the chore is done right. This is why many parents shy away from the job of training their children to do chores. “It just seems faster and easier to do it myself. “
Chores are an important part of training a child however. There are many lessons that can be learned from them. Check back the rest of this week to see why they are invaluable!
