University of Minnesota: First Step to Raising Good Kids

I’m trying my best to raise well-behaved, responsible children, but there is no manual so I wonder if what I’m doing is effective. A study conducted by the University of Minnesota does offer some advice on how to raise good kids.

The findings were published by ABC NewsMarty Rossman, the associate professor of family education at the University of Minnesota defines a child’s success as finds that the best predictor of a child’s success — defined as not using drugs, quality relationships, finishing education and getting started in a career — is that they began helping with chores at age three or four. The study found that it was important to start young.

The research shows that chores, as much as kids hate them, make the child feel like a contributing member of the family and teaches them responsibility and work ethic.
