Children & Chores: Creating A Balance of Independent Work Vs. Working With You

Children & Chores: Creating A Balance of Independent Work Vs. Working With You

In teaching children to become diligent workers, there is much training involved. However, there comes a point in the teaching of each new task where a job becomes that child’s job. The child has been taught, and he is ready to take the diligence to the next level—responsibility.
