Chores for Children

Want to know a secret? Children actually learn, grow and develop through doing household chores! As children do simple chores around the house they are learning how to be a team player, life skills, independence, problem solving and responsibility. Chores promote a positive self-esteem and positive self-confidence, positive family relationships and a sense of a household community. Not only are chores helping intellectually, they are enhancing children’s physical development, too!

Sit down with your child to work together to create a Chore Chart. This chart can be completed daily, weekly, or monthly; it is up to you! Allow your child to decorate their chart to make it their own and hang it in a place where the child can easily see it. As you create the Chore Chart with your child, brainstorm ideas that are appropriate for them, such as loading/unloading the dishwasher, sorting laundry by color, vacuuming, setting the table, dusting or washing surfaces, feeding the family pet, watering plants and so much more! While creating your Chore Chart discuss the time frame in which chores should be completed so children are aware of their expectations.

There are different age appropriate ways to involve children in household chores that will help create a positive household team! When children are a part of this team, they will feel important and needed. And plus, who doesn’t need extra help with chores?
