This news is bound to have parents jumping over the moon… But their kids not so much.
A new study from Harvard University has shown that children who do household chores are more likely to grow into a better person.
The research showed that kids who did chores were more likely to be better team players, more independent, and tended to understand that even though they didn’t always like doing chores, it was a key part in being part of a community.
Chores help to give children a greater understanding of what it means to contribute to something bigger than themselves, which can lead to better career prospects and relationship success.
Take this as an excuse to relax and get the kids to do some more jobs around the house.
