Chores by age

Household chores: good for children, good for the whole family


Children can learn a lot from doing household chores.

Doing chores helps children learn about what they need to do to care for themselves, a home and a family.


They learn skills they can use in their adult lives, like preparing meals, cleaning, organising and keeping a garden.


Being involved in chores also gives children experience of relationship skills like communicating clearly, negotiating, cooperating and working as a team.


When children contribute to family life, it helps them feel competent and responsible.


Even if they don’t enjoy the chore, when they keep going they get the feeling of satisfaction that comes with finishing a task.

And sharing housework can also help families work better and reduce family stress. When children help out, chores get done sooner, and parents have less to do.


This frees up time for the family to spend doing fun things together.
