Parents Getting Kids To Do Chores
The latest research too, certainly suggests that children who do have a set of chores to do at home, end up having higher self-esteem, are more responsible, and are generally more well equipped at dealing with frustration and delaying gratification, all of which results in greater success at school.
Self esteem is an important criteria for any child to possess, and having that innate quality of confidence goes a long way in life. One of the biggest problems of over-indulgence stems from parents who end up doing too much for their children and not expecting enough of them.
When a child helps at home, they are also learning important life skills (from cooking, cleaning and or laundry)
Children who help to do chores with other family members in the house also become better team players, great co-workers, and awesome life-partners.
When we teach our kids how to do something for themselves, it can enable them to have more responsibility and nurture their needs for independence.

“If kids aren't doing the dishes, it means someone else is doing that for them,” Julie Lythcott-Haims, former dean of freshmen at Stanford University and author of “How to Raise an Adult” said during a TED Talks Liveevent.
“And so they're absolved of not only the work, but of learning that work has to be done and that each one of us must contribute for the betterment of the whole,” she said.
Lythcott-Haims believes kids raised on chores go on to become employees who collaborate well with their coworkers, are more empathetic because they know firsthand what struggling looks like, and are able to take on tasks independently.
She bases this on the Harvard Grant Study, the longest longitudinal study ever conducted.
