The most important thing about the parenthood is to make their children handy and most responsible children. In order to attain their goal, they should start welcoming the important chores. Assigning of chores should not be tedious but simple that are suitable according to the children’s age. So that, when the kids reach the teenagers, they should have learned the skills and chores for young adulthood.
Any parent would rejoice, whenever there are extra supporting hands in and around the house, especially if those helping arms are by their own kids that would be terrific. More than lending their parents to do, children who do the chores by their own will learn a lot of skills in their lifestyles. I would like to highlight some of the best skills that the kids would gain through the chores;
1. Appropriate Planning
The first skill that enhances the kid is the ability to plan by themselves. When the parents provide the list of chores to be done, the child will be capable to prioritize the allocated chores. This skill can be learned via the regular(routine) chores assigned by the parents.
2. Taking Pride
One of the greatest rewards is the complimentary after the completion of the chores I.e; “Well Done”, “ Chore ratings through star and smileys”, or any kind of compliment that the children are fond off. This is the sense of accomplishment and pride that comes with them in-built during their childhood
3. Listening, Responding and Respecting
The recurring habitual of doing chores will develop the kid’s growth continuously. So that without having to be cajoled, the kids will be capable of doing their chores before even the assignment of chores. Through this children’s skill improves to listen, respond and respect their parents thought.
Self-confidence is one of the important skill compared to other skill sets. When this ability enhances, kids will be capable of solving any kind of complex problems. Mastering the chore boosts the kid’s self-esteem and increases the level of confidence
5. Team Work
Chore doesn’t mean only for the kids the parents or anybody can combine within the chore activities so that the children love to work more than the usual. This way of positive approach will build the positive skill set, which creates a flexible environment to work, share and help each other in a teamwork.
6. Importance of routine and consistency
Creating the necessity of routine chores will enhance the faithfulness for the kids in whatever work they do. For instance, watering the plants regularly makes the plant to live if not done regularly the plants might die. This kind of lessons should be taught during their chore activities so that the kids will get to know the importance of the routine chores.
7. Strong Work Ethics
The more things fed during the earlier stage elaborate with more values. Children who are capable of doing the chores during their childhood will have a strong work ethics, once they enter into the world of young adulthood. This doesn’t mean only for the household chores, but they will learn any kind of work ethics.
8. Self Reliant
A non-reliant person is thousand worth than the reliant person. Once the children are practiced by their routine chores, they do not rely upon their parenthood to assign chores for them. They typically start by their own, which boosts their most required self-reliant skills.
Cleanliness is next to Godliness
As everybody knows the main purpose of the household chores is for the cleanliness. When the children who are taught to do the chores in the earlier stage will learn to keep their surroundings tide and clean where they will have less troublesome in maintaining throughout their lives.
10. Time Management
Managing the time effectively and efficiently is crucial in every part of life. Learning such chore activities in the childhood like juggling homework, extra activities, gardening or any kind of chore that is done within the time period make the kids gain precious experience in time management
I hope you would have understood the valuable concept behind the chores from the above-mentioned skill sets.
Overall, this blogging states about getting the chores done by kids is not to burden them or to make them engaged in the extracurricular activities or just for the relief for parenthood. It’s all about to make children learn to do all the chores by themselves that will gain exposure(life’s mandatory skills) when they move into the world of young adulthood.
Gaining all these understandings in the childhood will help kids to grow in well advanced and capable of becoming a successful adult. So do not say “No To Chores”, rather make them do it in a better way.
