Kids doing chores in the NEWS
A survey by Braun Research last year says 82 percent of adults had chores as children, but only 28% of children today have chores and help out around the house.
So that makes me a minority in two ways. Firstly I didn't have chores as a child and secondly my kids do chores today.
This is when I came up with a chore chart system that has changed our family life. Now everyone helps, everyone now has chore responsibilities and they also have chores in which they earn tickets that they can redeem for privileges, money, or/and screen time. My kids are happy and helping and it has been amazing! I no longer need to nag my children, they were (and still are) excited to do their chores, they are learning how to do new things, I have more time for me and more time for them and everything runs so much more smoothly. You wouldn't think they were the same kids. It was so amazing in fact that I decided to develop our chore system as a real retail product so that it would be available for other families as I wish it had been available for us when we needed it.
Chances are that if you are here then you are already familiar with our chore system, NEATLINGS Chore Chart System, but if not you have to check it out!! Click here to learn more about it and see how it works!
That is my story but I am not an educated professional in child development or education but as you can imagine I have done plenty of research on the topic. Which is why I thought it would be fun to share some video links on what the experts say about chores for kids.
