How Do Kids Feel About Doing Chores
Eighty two percent of American adults regularly did chores as children, including cleaning, cooking, laundry and dishes. Just 28 percent ask the same of their own kids.
A national survey of 1,000 respondents in September found that we are loath to ask our kids to pull their weight around the house.
When the parents who do assign chores were asked how their children feel about their duties. 43 percent said they complain, and 37 percent said they try to get out of them. 13 percent said their kids will do chores only if they get paid.
Maybe we need to remind ourselves, as often as we do our kids, that chores are good for them.
