    Oh they whine but it actually helps them understand that you have to work for good things. That they are a vital role to running a great household and that what they do matters.

    They listen much better! Much more polite! Always want to help clean up etc when we're at a friends house! We don't have to ask them to do as much because they do it on their own!

    A5- Chores definitely has been positive on their behavior. They know that these things need to be done and is a regular routine for them #CleaningAsAFamily

    "i WOULD like to think that it has installed some kind of value in him....due to him working towards an allowance or "fun time"...i think he appreciates doing chores more.

    Initiating chores in my household has greatly impact the children's behavior outside of the home because they are more responsible. They know every action has a reaction. At home they pick up after themselves and cause less of a mess (because they know they'll only end up having to clean it later!)
  9. a5 they tell others how they help! I think they will have a positive influence on others!

  10. Chores bring a sense of self worth and at the same time bring discipline. What they learn at an early age will stay with them into adulthood (things like responsibility)

    I have noticed they try harder to keep things picked up especially in the family room which is awesome! They are pretty good about picking up toys at friend's homes before we leave, but sometimes they still need to be reminded to help out.

    My son seems to be proud and have a sense of responsibility....okay, honestly? He hates doing his chores, he rather play Nintendo and I don't blame him, chores are no fun! I do believe that it does help him learn about being responsible. At least I hope so!

    A5: When my son goes to other kids' houses to play, he always helps clean up the toys. I think starting him early has made him really respectful, and polite, too #CleaningAsAFamily

    Responsiblility given to a child starts from inside a home, so that they can be productive and responsible outside of a home. Being conscious of their own responsibility gives pride and sense of accomplishment! #CleaningAsAFamily
