“Every child must have chores to do. It gives them dignity in work and the joy of labour.”
― Earl Hamner Jr.
Everyone needs to help around the house – be it adults or children. Household chores are never ending and everyone needs to participate in it. However, parents may not always understand how to get young children started on household chores. Today, we are going to explore how to assign daily chores to children between the ages 2 to 5.
Let’s get started!
A book, Parenting Preschoolers 2 to 5 Years Old: 20 Tips for Parents from Preschool Teachers, mentions a few tips that can help parents assign chores. They are as follows:
Parents also need to model the desired behaviour, as children learn by observation and are likely to mimic their parents. They need to be present and guide the child through a difficult situation. It may take some children longer than others to get used to the chores. Be consistent and patient to help your child to do chores responsibly and diligently.
