Teaching your toddler to do chores

Chores are beneficial

Believe it or not, chores can be fun! And they can teach your toddler skills that he or she will need later in life.

You may have hated chores when you were growing up, but the truth is that they offer many benefits for children. Household responsibilities not only teach the value of organization, responsibility, and appreciation for belongings, they also boost a child’s self-esteem because he or she is making an important contribution to the family. Even toddlers can start helping with age-appropriate tasks that will help them learn to enjoy their responsibilities early on.
