Chores are good for kids. Most pediatric and psychiatric specialists for kids can attest to that. However, you need to assign age-appropriate chores to your kids for this statement to be true in your kids’ lives. If otherwise, you are just brewing a perfect concoction of danger and frustration.

Giving kids chores can contribute big time to their well-being. When kids are able to do and complete a task, their self-esteem is built or taken to a higher level. This is because they see themselves as equally capable of accomplishing chores just like adults.

It is important that you explain why your kids need to do chores besides instructing them how each chore must be done. By so doing, you are instilling among them sense of accountability. Accountability prods them to finish chores in their suggested time frame and in a satisfactory manner.

As kids continue to receive chores and accomplish them, they learn how to be organized with their own stuff and other things. They think of ways to keep things neat in order to save energy and time – allowing  them to have  extra time to play.
