My 16 year old argued that no one in his high school has chores except him! I asked you took that poll did you? Oh, no? Well I will if you don't do your chores!

Tell him that my cousin-in-law who's 14 still does chores and won't be finished doing them until he moves out, at which point he'll still have "chores", just renamed responsibilities.

Myself at 20 still have "chores", just now it's renamed responsibility. I do dishes, laundry, make meals for husband and mother-in-laws kids, get kid ready for school in the morning, help kids with homework, do homework for college, etc.

Chores just turn into responsibility the older you get.

i think they to learn responsibilty stating with home work and home chores so they learn to manage a little more responsibilty at a time because life does not let you get by with just one task

it's interesting to me that 40% of us don't have kids! I am so ready for kids emotionally but financially is a different story. Swagbucks has helped get my credit cards down, hopefully we'll be back on the right tracks before long and my husband and i will feel more comfortable bringing a baby into the equation. I think people these days have far less money, and buy far more things than people used to, so we now need to worry about it when we decide to try to bring a life into the world. We need God's help!

Not a very acurate poll. I have kids but they are too young to have chores. That should have been an option

Are they less than 1? If not they can pick up their toys, clothes, help put plastic dishes, plates, cups in the sink, flush the toilet after you clean it, you will be surprised what a child can do try it , you will be amazed

Yes, it is extremely important for children to to chores, they learn to be responsible it also build's up their self esteem. They feel they are helping in some small way, making a small contribution in building the household up, if done in a constructive way

They also can earn allowance this way too, something for something, that's my motto,even as young as two years of age. Done correctly, you will have your kids fighting over who will do chores

My children are adults now. Of course when they were little they had chores!! Taking out the trash, putting dishes away, cleaning the living room and picking up the yard. Loads more, really. But....we didn't call them "chores". They just acted like part of the family and everyone chips in for that. One day I would take out the trash....the next my oldest would....then my husband (well....ex now) took the trash out. No one really balked at doing stuff around the house...lol...well...except when my youngest decided to look for some random toy in the bottom of the toy box!! HAHAHA! Seriously tho...even on "heavy cleaning day" the kids helped out until the house was cleaned up. I reckon I have strange kids or some kind of mystical power that I don't recognize.

I think that the key to success is responsibility and if you dont get taught that young and dont help your parents who do EVERYTHING for you then you will have a really hard time in life. Im 16 and i do most of the chores in the house as well as making dinner and cleaning up after! The least i can do!

I do not have any kids but i really don't really see the problem with some chores. i do think that there should be a limit. i have seen some kids' chore lists that are a mile long and i think that is overboard.

I was doing my own laundry by the time I could reach the knobs to start the washer. I was making my own breakfasts, lunches, and dinners since I knew how to turn on the stove and work the microwave. I fed the animals (believe me, we had A LOT!), did the dishes, vacuumed, cleaned the bathroom... And even though I am turning 26 and haven't lived at home for 5 years, I still help out when I visit my parents. I remember getting weekly assignment sheets, and if we filled up a row with star stickers, we got a prize (go out for ice cream, pizza for dinner, a bit of cash, etc.). It worked for me, since now I am by far the cleanest person in my family.

My kids don't have chores per se, but they do help out around the house. If I see things are getting messy, I tell everyone it's clean-up time. If I fold a load of laundry, I'll tell each of them to put their clothes away, put the towels away, help your brother, etc. They may get assigned chores as they get older, or they may not. Right now, we're doing what works for us, and that's the important thing.

My child is grown and in the Naval Academy, but when he was younger he had chores. As did I when I was growing up. I believe it instills responsibility to the young children.

No choice to say my child is raised and 34 now but indeed he had chores to do, and his first employer told me that no matter what I left him in my will, I had left him the most precious gift a child can receive -- a work ethic. Chores help build that.

Well, i would help my mom around the house..... but since she basically takes all my paychecks and uses them on things like drinks and cigarettes, I don't. Don't care if I'm 18, wouldn't be living with here if she let me keep the cash I make.

What she is doing is theft who cares if she is your mom I would report her, and you said in a comment she stole/took your ATM card that can be fined under identify theft as well.

That's not healthy. If she's taking your whole paychecks, you might be better off financially (among other things) by moving out.

trust me, i've been trying to. but sadly, since i never end up with any of my cash its kinda hard.

Been withdrawing paypal and transferring earnings from here to there. that way it will eventually add up for 1 months worth of rent then i dont need to worry about some little old lady looking for beer cash coming into my room and grabbing my ATM card or cash out of my wallet.

I have three little boys and they do chores. I refuse to have three teenage boys that just lay around and don't know how to clean up after themselves. I want to encourage my boys to be able to cook and clean for themselves and not depend on a women to do it for them.

My parents are basically enabling my sibling who's in their early 20's. They have job & yet still expect my father to pay for all of their expenses. They don't pay room & board & that's not the worse, they do not clean up after themselves. I'm sick & tired of fighting with them over it & everyone either doesn't back me up or does so half halfheartedly. The one chore they're expected to do? We've been living here about 8 years & the garbage day schedule is always the same. Can't even remember that & it doesn't matter if you ask nicely, they'l get mad at you! My dad said we all had to go to school if we weren't going to work & live under his roof after school. I feel this is more than fair because he pays for everything, the least we can do is keep the house clean & do well in school.

I concur. My uncle was babied, living in my grandparents' house until he was 30. He did not pay rent or contribute to the household in any way. He never really grew up, hopped around from girlfriend to girlfriend, minimally participated in raising his kids, and is back to not working in his 50s. His older siblings were expected to become responsible and are now successful professionals. Helping your children for a short time is commendable, but allowing them to free load only hampers their ability to thrive independently.

Wow, that sounds like my uncle as well. :( Me I've been sick a good chunk of my life so I couldn't work or go to school but I always tried to help where & I could. My brother is so selfish though, the kind of person who sees someone struggle with a heavy box? Won't even bat an eye. I get so upset when I find he doesn't help my mother takes my sister's medical supplies to the attic while I'm at school. I'm out in the world now & trying to make something of myself but I feel it's going to be hard because I'm behind everyone else. He has so much going for him, he's still really young & just throws it away. Maybe my dad thinks he'll "grown up" but I think he needs tough love at this point.
