Chores + Divorce

“Pitching in at home has become a crucial marriage-preservation skill for young men,” writes Sue Shellenbarger in the Wall Street Journal (8/27/08).

If that’s true, we might expect an increase in divorce rates in the years ahead because children, ages 6-12, are not doing as much in the way of housework as they once did.

In fact, a University of Maryland study of 1,343 children finds that kids today “are spending a mere 24 minutes a day doing cleaning, laundry and housework — a 12 percent decline since 1997 and a 25 percent drop from 1981 levels.”

So make your child work in family and you are teaching him people management, how to behave with others and thus ensuring a good family life and making him/her a better person in the society. Infact working in teams make people more reasonable and open-minded.

So you know what to do.
