My son and daughter get really busy
during the school year with soccer games, dance lessons, and
homework. Should I do their chores for them during this
Parents should not do children's jobs for them because they have a lot of homework and other activities. Instead, help them to organize their time so that they can continue to help the family. This is a skill they will need to know as they grow into adulthood.
