Quick Answers...


Should I reward my children for doing chores?

Completing a chore and doing it correctly should be a reward in itself. Accepting the responsibility for helping with chores teaches children that there are routine tasks that are done in order to help the family. In addition, children learn to contribute to the household by doing these chores.
