When you read Happy kids, Proud parents, Strong families, do you ever wonder or doubt. “How can my kids like doing chores or even do them with a happy heart.” I am an accountable kid and have been using the Accountable Kids program for about nine years and I know that I do like to do my chores now because they’re not chores they are responsibilities that we get entrusted with. Lots of kids now are lazy. Typically we don’t want to do any chores because we don’t think they benefit us in any way, but after using Accountable Kids for so long I know different. I can see now when our chores are done it does benefit us. It makes life easier for our parents because when the house is clean they tend to be a little less stressed and don’t nag us. It makes life easier for us because we have a positive attitude when our parents aren’t stressed or nagging us. It gives us more time to spend as a family because we aren’t cleaning all the time because when we do our chores the house stays cleaner and we aren’t angry with each. We all get more done on a daily basis. Our pets are happier when we have more time to spend with them. We also get key tools that we need to be able to live on our own and work jobs. Kids grow up and use many of the same parenting tools that their parents used especially if they were good parents. We get our foundation for life from our parents. We learn in our years at home many things that affect our character traits. I know that now, and later I will be able to cherish and grow from my experience from living with my parents. I know that now, and later I will be thanking them with my words, thoughts, actions and one day hopefully my children.
