Household Chores Lead to Possible Job Skills


By involving children at a young age in work around the house, abilities will be developed for responsibility, independence and employment skills for the future.  They are learning to contribute to their home life, build self esteem for accomplishments and earn respect as a contributing member of the family and community.  Developing independent skills does not just come at transition to adulthood time but throughout ones life.  Summer is a great time to introduce new household skills into daily morning routines.  During the school year chores  tend to have to be afterschool to avoid the morning household rush.
