I’m a huge proponent of chores for young children. As soon as my children are old enough to hold something in their hand, I’m basically looking for ways I can have them help me. For my kids, getting them involved in household tasks and assigning them chores gives them a sense of ownership and authority that they seriously lack in their days that are mostly filled with taking orders and living by an adult’s schedule. This sense of control and household involvement makes them easier to manage, especially during the difficult toddler years, because they have an outlet to exercise their burgeoning independence.
