Entrusting Chores to Children Contributes to their Success – Study

As paradoxical as it may seem, a study has just revealed something that should change parents’ habits.

In Côte d’Ivoire, it is forbidden to work children from 0 to 15 years old. We are not talking here about work that could constitute a danger for the life of the minor.

It is rather to involve the child in the chores of the house. Sweep, learn how to cook with mom, do dishes, etc.

There are parents who do not allow their children to get their hands dirty. However, it has just been scientifically proven that involving a child in housework contributes to the child’s success.

In fact, according to a Harvard study, professional success is linked to household chores performed while still a child.


By the way, the sooner kids start helping you, the better. Housekeeping, storage, meals … having them participate in what looks like chores for them develops their sense of responsibility and teaches them to do things even when they do not want to.

According to Julie Lythcott-Haims, author of the bestseller ‘How to educate an adult’: “When taking out the trash or washing, children realize that in life, they must work. Tidying up their room, laying the bed, these are small tasks that a child can do easily. Small tasks today that can have a big impact on the adult that will be tomorrow. In giving him these chores, you show him that some work needs to be done, you teach him the sense of teamwork and cooperation. ” More autonomous, more independent and more resourceful, the chores are not so terrible for our children!
