Starting chores at a young age is a great way to teach children responsibility and a sense of independence! In a recent article in The Wall Street Journal, Jennifer Breheny Wallace made this claim:
“Doing household chores has many benefits—academically, emotionally and even professionally.”
She goes further to say that “[g]iving children household chores at an early age helps to build a lasting sense of mastery, responsibility and self-reliance, according to research by Marty Rossmann, professor emeritus at the University of Minnesota.”
However, traditional chemical cleaners make it unsafe for kids to lend a hand. Here we outline age-appropriate chores for children of all ages using e-cloth and just water! e-cloth 100% eliminates the risk of chemical sensitivities, allergic reactions, rashes and asthma attacks associated with the use of chemical additives, fragrances and dyes typically found in cleaning products.
So, go ahead Mom, assign those chores, because Chemical-free Cleaning with e-cloth is safe for children of any age.
