Assigning Kids Chores by Age

No kid likes being assigned chores, but it’s important to teach our kids responsibility early in life. Kids should be taught chores as early as two years of age. This will help them develop organizational skills and give them a better understanding of what’s expected from them as they grow older.

Chores also teach them an array of different abilities including competence and self-esteem. Bub Hub has comprised a list of age-appropriate chores from ages two to eight that will let your kids help Mom and Dad.
