To chore assign or not to chore assign? That is the question of the day. What is your take on the matter? Do you see it as some kind of “child slavery” or teaching responsibility at an early stage in life? If you are confused about which side to be, read the following article and suggested reading to hopefully formulate your own opinion. Bonne lecture!

21% of Parents Don’t Require Their Kids to Do Chores

Ever feel like a meanie by requiring your kids to help with family chores, such as folding laundry or washing dishes? You shouldn’t, because as Time Magazine reports, children whose parents require them to do chores are likely to be more successful in life.

Reporting on a recent survey from Funifi, TIME notes the ups and downs of chores:

“Setting regular chores probably means you will argue more. A third of parents in the U.S. who require their youngsters to perform regular household duties argue with them once a week, according to the survey. That compares with just 21% of parents that do not require that their kids perform household chores.

But the payoff is big. According to the survey, among parents who require chores:

  • 87% report their kids are doing well in school, vs. 61% of parents who do not require chores.
  • 92% report their kids are creative, vs. 80% of parents who do not require chores.
  • 88% regard their kids as responsible, vs. 63% of parents who do not require chores.
  • 92% regard their kids as disciplined, vs. 78% of parents who do not require chores.”

There are an increasing number of complaints in today’s society that many in the younger generation have an overly-sensitive, entitled approach to family, school, and work. Would we see a decline in this type of attitude if more parents sought to instill responsibility and a strong work ethic in their children through chores like those in the list below?
