CLEVELAND — On Friday’s Lunch Break with Jay Crawford, we chewed over the idea that most parents think chores teach kids a valuable lesson and self-control, but that may not be the case.
A researcher at the University of Houston and colleagues in California found chores did little to encourage self-control, despite the common idea that holding kids responsible for work around the house teaches them to focus their attention and get a job even when they don’t want to.
The study did say, however, that there is a connection between doing chores as a kid and doing them as an adult, so having chores in the household might be setting you up for a clean future.
