4 reasons kids MUST do chores

25 November 2015, 13:43 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi -  As a kid I used to wish I could take my parents to court for child abuse since I felt that all those chores I did were a form of some default on their part when it came to child labor law. Looking back on the other hand, I have come to appreciate what I learnt and how they help me become a more responsible adult when it comes to handling my business.

The child will get mad but in the long run they will learn the importance of what they are doing other than playing video games and Cartoon Network.

They learn responsibility

A lot of parents think that a child doing their homework is them learning enough responsibility. But there is a difference between what you have to do for school and what you learn to do at home that helps you be more responsible. And when they start doing it on their own accord because they know that is their part, you will feel better that you did not have to remind them.


Put in the simplest terms; they do what needs to be done by them and without you having to have a row with them. Discipline is like charity it starts at home.

They will eventually learn to have a sense of pride in everything they do

That builds their self-esteem. When they learn how to first cook or they clean the house so they will obviously not be willing to create a mess because it will be up to them to clean it up. A child is willing to do more and be better when they learn the proper ropes of what they are doing.

They become more self-reliant

There is that one child whom if you get in late from work they will be dying from hunger even though all they have to do is heat up a meal. Then there is the other one that will clean themselves up after school, eat and you will find them doing their homework without waiting for direction. There is the one that will lose everything the first day of boarding school and the one who is a survivor. It is not hardship; it is called them learning how to stand on their own when you are not around. Which child is yours?
