I dont think we should do chores because we, first of all, did not ask to come into this worls in the first place, so I dont think that we should have to do chores if we dont want to.


Hello, As the Pro contender, I will be showing the reasons why children should do chores.

Yes, Children did not ask to be brought into the world, but no one can change the fact that they are. Doing chores is just another way to help this children learn the way the world works so to say, the world won't give you everything for free, and if you think that that is just how that works you are surely mistaken. Chores are not enjoyable but neither are jobs (Depending on what your doing) or education, but they get you ready to do hard labor.

Chores teach children gratitude, and they also teach them how to manage their time. If you have to clean the kitchen and do the laundry, but want to see a movie in an hour. It teaches you to be efficient.

Therefore, Chores may not be the most enjoyable thing but they do teach you things that will help you in the long run.

Yes, I see you point, but when the parents have the kids to do chores, then it makes the kids feel like they are the maids around the house, and while the parents kick back back and chill, the kids have to clean up the house. The bhouse that they are cleaning up is not even theirs, so they should not have to take responsibility for it at all.


But they are also living under their roof. When the children have a house of their own and work a job, then they can come home and chill. And most of the time, the parents are doing "chores" of their own. You can't expect to live somewhere and eat there and take up space without giving something in return.

I understand what you are saying, and from the looks of it, you like dong chores. But when parents have their kids doing chores all of the timem then the parents are going to start relying on the kids to do the work when something is not done or they dont feel like dong it. Kids shoud also be able to have a choice to decide whether or not they are going to dp chores or no. I know its a parents responsibility to raise a child in the way that they should go, but kids need time to deicde what they want to be in life, and they cant vener have time to theirselves if they are always cleaning up or walkin around doing what their parents say, while the parents bark them around telling them what to do and when to do it.
