Chores for Kids

Ever wonder what age your kids should start doing chores? Read below for a guideline on chores for kids. These ages are approximate and it is important to keep in mind the individual child. Whatever method you decide to use, just remember that teaching the value of work by assigning chores is something that can be started at an early age.
