Should kids do chores?
Debate Rounds (2)
My 1st debate, so go as hard as you can on me!
You said ,"Studies have shown that parents would trust their kids more if they did their chores without being asked and pushed." Well I would like to see these "studies". This is your first debate but you must site your sources. Again, I believe that children should do chores that pertain to themselves to learn how to live on their own. But doing chores for other people that are full capable of doing it themselves is irrelevant.
You said. " Even though some days in school may be hard for the student, do schools keep on piling and piling more homework every night?" At most jobs they don't keep piling and piling more work on every day. School is like work. You have to work hard most of the time, you get breaks often, and you are surrounded by your peers. Also, in most school there is homework everyday that does pile on and on. Some jobs require you to do homework while others don't. An adult can quit their job at any time too. While a student is forced to stay in school.
You said," They'll begin to believe in you and think you can control yourself when it comes with entertainment." What does this debate and entertainment have to do with each other. If this had not been a 2 round debate maybe you could have clarified. Until then that sentence is completely irrelevant to this debate.
Your concluding sentence is this," Therefore, chores are a great way to earn trust, responsibility, and an understanding if what it's going to be like in the future." Doing chores is not going to help children understand what the future will be like. Doing chores will not help them with, owning a car, marriage, children, or college.
I believe that a child should only have to clean up after themselves. The Pro seems to think that the life of every adult is a terrible one and they cannot go on to do another chore. I think the Pro is forgetting one key factor in this debate. Children need to be Children.
"Children must be taught how to think, not what to think."

"Children aren't coloring books. You don't get to fill them with your favorite colors."

"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales."

"I cannot go to school today"
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
"I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.
My mouth is wet, my throat is dry.
I'm going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I've counted sixteen chicken pox.
And there's one more - that's seventeen,
And don't you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut, my eyes are blue,
It might be the instamatic flu.
I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke,
I'm sure that my left leg is broke.
My hip hurts when I move my chin,
My belly button's caving in.
My back is wrenched, my ankle's sprained,
My 'pendix pains each time it rains.
My toes are cold, my toes are numb,
I have a sliver in my thumb.
My neck is stiff, my voice is weak,
I hardly whisper when I speak.
My tongue is filling up my mouth,
I think my hair is falling out.
My elbow's bent, my spine ain't straight,
My temperature is one-o-eight.
My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear,
There's a hole inside my ear.
I have a hangnail, and my heart is ...
What? What's that? What's that you say?
You say today is .............. Saturday?
G'bye, I'm going out to play!"
