Fact: Doing chores improves your child's chances for a happy marriage and a good job. Many parents, rather than fighting their children over chores, would rather do the chores themselves. But Patricia Sprinkle makes a convincing and entertaining case for why kids need chores. They need to develop basic life skills such as cooking and cleaning. They need to learn responsibility and the value of hard work. In short, they need to learn how to become dependable, capable adults.

Reviews - What do customers think about Children Who Do Too Little?

must read if you have children!  Mar 15, 2008
This book is top notch. It is well written and hard to put down! I own a cleaning business and I train mom's to clean and teach their kids to clean. This is my most highly recommended resources as a starting point for parenting and teaching life skills.

I love the format and I love the fact that it has discussion questions for mom's who want to use this in a small group book study format.

Chores make everyone happier in the long run  May 4, 2004
A striaghtforward clear book that discusses why kids should do chores and how it helps them, lays out why they don't, different techniques and practical ideas for helping them to, and is just a really good and useful book. A little religious, but staunch atheist as I am, nothing more than say Fly Lady.

Really really worth buying if you're trying to figure out why you feel guilty over making your kids do chores but angry when they don't.
