What chores do you have at home? Do you think all kids should have chores? We asked sixth graders from Community Middle School.
I cut the yard and clean my room. Yes; you need to help your parents.
I clean my room and help out with laundry. Yes; sometimes parents get home late and you can help out.
I do my own laundry. Yes; it keeps them busy.
I wash dishes, clean my room and the living room. Yes; everyone needs to do it. If it's dirty, clean it up.
I clean up after dinner and feed the dogs. Yes; it is a good way to learn responsibility for when you get in the real world.
I do dishes, clean the living room, and take out the trash. Yes; it can teach discipline.
It depends on the day, but usually I do dishes or the floors. I think so; they are the ones that make the mess.
Sometimes, but not often. It depends on the day and if there's stuff to do. Yes; it prepares them for adult life because adults do nothing but chores all the time. It's just at a higher level of chores.
A couple. I do the mowing and put the dishes away. Yes; it helps you build discipline and helps you get ready for a job. Chores on Saturday morning, you have to wake up early and for a job you have to wake up early. So, if you didn't have chores you wouldn't be used to waking up early and you'll be late to work.
