Even young children can help with chores if you choose activities that are right for their age. Young children naturally want to be a part of the family and want to help. Involving them in household tasks at an early age can have a positive impact on their life.
Involving your children in household chores creates a sense of community and belonging, that you’re all working together to take care of your home and each other, and they will see themselves as important contributors to the family. Chores increase children’s sense of themselves and build a sense of responsibility.
When your child is young you can start with simple chores that will give them a sense of accomplishment as they complete them…then as they grow and mature you can continue to expand on the jobs they are asked to do.
