Parents should give their children tasks to do so they learn to become responsible. The results of a study conducted by the University of Minnesota showed that children who performed housework had better feelings of responsibility and self-worth years later. Children who feel good about themselves are more respectful of others.
Even if my son is only 3 years and 4 months old, he already knows how to put away his toys, but he does this only when he’s in a good mood. LOL! There are two household chores, though, that he would do anytime: dusting and sweeping the floor.
