Do you agree that we should teach our kids the responsibility of having household chores at a young age?

I do believe that one of the most important things we can teach our children is to have a strong sense of responsibility. I also agree that we should teach our kids the responsibility of having household chores, and the best time to start is at an early age. This way, having responsibilities have already became a habit for them, and not something that’s taught or imposed of at the last minute.

As young as 2, I have observed my daughter's love of being involved on what is going on around her. She wants to be able to help when I am cooking, washing clothes or simply fixing things around. She is always curious so I took advantage of these impulses to inculcate into her the basics of responsibility. I started by training her to put away her toys after playing with them, putting her dirty clothes on the laundry, and asking her to help me on tidying the table.

Now that she is getting older, I started training her with simple household chores like sweeping the floor, dishwashing, washing and folding her own clothes. When it comes on washing plates, I stay by her side and supervise her while telling her the do's and don't as she is still young, so as to avoid the chances of her breaking utensils or hurting herself. Letting her do some household chores motivated her to learn more and do more. As of now, I am planning on teaching her the basics of cooking, starting of with the basic and easiest things to learn and do.

I firmly believe that kids who are trained to be responsible does not only learn to take, act on and get used of having responsibilities, but they will also acquire the ability to make rational or moral decisions on their own, do the things they are supposed to do and accept the results of their own actions when they grow up. So it is very important that we teach them at a young age, and one way is to get them equipped with having household chores.

There is no right or wrong on teaching our kids household chores as long as the learning task is within their own capacity. Be sure to give your kids a clear instructions on what you want them to do, so they know exactly what's expected of them. Also, ignore the mistakes and focus on successes. Most importantly, be patient on teaching them and always be ready to guide them. What counts the most is not exactly how the work is done, but that it is definitely done. Lastly, appraise them for every job done no matter how small it is. This will let them continue on what they are doing.

How about you? Do you agree that we should teach our kids home responsibilities at a young age?

Yes I definitely agree with you. I was 10 yrs old when my mom taught me on a lot of household things and rewarded me something in return after doing a well done task she gave me. My favorite was a gallon of ice cream combined with a bowl of spaghetti with garlic toasted bread. I preferred my spaghetti with lots of thick sauce and ofcourse a big bottle of soda. If these were not the prize, then she better give those tasks to my other siblings.. hahaha Répondre

I thinks we should let our children learn little by little how to deal with household chores but not force them or obliged them to do them at a very young age. I believe that they should enjoy too their childhood, but must learn how to be responsible inside our homes. Thanks for sharing. That is a nice topic. Happy morning! Répondre
