I am excited to share these chore ideas by age and free printable with you today. Children have been doing chores on Saturday morning since the world began, I imagine. But what does your child LEARN by doing chores?
- RESPONSIBILITY ~ by giving your child a task and being clear that it is their job to complete the task, your child will learn responsibility. With responsibility comes reward which is what older children will learn.
- WORK ETHIC ~ it is amazing how many teenagers and young adults do not have the dedication and work ethic to complete jobs now-a-days. By instilling this trait early, you will raise a child whom employers will love to hire.
- TEAM WORK ~ by having children of ALL ages complete tasks in your home, you will show that by working together by breaking down larger tasks, the jobs will be completed sooner. Many hands make light work!
Having your child participate in chores around the house and yard will help raise confident, independent children who will have the life skills needed to grow up and take on the world.
Parenting is a tough job and everyone wants to raise children that are capable of handling life’s ups and downs, but how do you know which chores your child can easily handle?
These CHORE IDEAS BY AGE are a great place to start!
Keep in mind that these chore ideas are obviously guidelines. Some children will be able to complete chores in the age list above theirs while others will not yet be quite at the stage their age says. Each home is different, and within that home, each child is different.
Do you have weekly chores that your children are responsible for? Some parents also tack on allowance or some type of payment when it comes to chore completion. What do you find works in your home?
