5 Reasons Kids Should Help With Family Chores
- they gain a great deal of confidence and sense of accomplishment
- they feel “a part” of something
- it helps prepare them for their future
- they will have a greater respect for the “things” and people in their lives
- it helps reduce your work load – less time spent doing chores means more time to spend with those who matter most – our family!
