Helping Hands: 10 Summer Chores to Teach Your Kids

Summer is the perfect time to teach kids new tricks. Why don't you try teaching them household chores? By Ruth M. Floresca

choresSummer means that school’s out, but that doesn’t have to stop your kids from learning a thing or two. Teach your kids how to do simple chores this summer, and make sure that they see the fun side of acquiring new knowledge and skills. When summer boredom strikes, consider chores as an alternative way to entertain your children. Learning chores will not only teach them important practical skills, but it will also make them learn values such as discipline and responsibility.
