Parents often think that giving household chores to children can deprive them of too much of their time during these vital carefree years of their lives. But psychologists argue that when our children are given the chance to help us, they feel like fully-fledged members of the family, learn to be independent, and avoid becoming too daunted by notions of responsibility.
With this in mind, we at Bright Side decided to put together a handy guide which indicates the chores you can offer to kids at various ages.
