Chores and Life Skills

–Delana H Stewart

Focus on the Family recently sent me an article titled Age Appropriate Chores. This super article gives examples of appropriate chores for children from 2-18 years of age. It briefly discusses the difference between life skills and chores. It is a quick read and has bulleted items for easy reference. At the end of the article are two downloadable PDF chore charts.
