Various assignments that parents can give a child develop his hard work and prepare him for adulthood. It is important to understand what work can be assigned to a teenager, and how to make sure that he cope with the tasks assigned to him.
Every child has to do some chores around the house. What his parents instruct him to do depends on his health, abilities and other factors. Doing various household chores is a good foundation for your future adult life.
As soon as the baby reaches a relatively "adult" age - about 4-5 years old - he can begin to give simple, but very specific instructions. They should be very clearly stated. The request itself should not be understood in two ways by the child. Tasks can be set like this: go to a certain place, take a certain thing and bring it. The item that parents ask to bring must be safe and such that the baby is able to calmly hold in his hands.
The child grows up and turns from a toddler into a teenager. He is now able to perform more complex tasks. For example, wash the dishes or help clean the apartment. The parents' requirements must be within the reach of the teenager. You can send your child to a nearby store, having previously explained where to go and what to buy. For the first time, an adult can go with him and show the location of the store, as well as explain and show by example how purchases are made. However, in this case, the child should not be left unattended: you can, for example, give him money near the cash register and ask him to pay for the purchased goods himself. Thus, he will already feel his contribution.
Responsibilities depending on the gender of the child
There are common tasks that both a boy and a girl are able to cope with. But there are also those things that are customary in society to be performed by persons of the same sex. Parents, of course, can get the girl to help hammer in nails, but it should be borne in mind that this activity is completely uncommon for women. For girls-to-be, it is more suitable to learn to iron clothes, wash dishes or help in cooking.
There are also purely male activities, for example, hammering nails, working with a screwdriver and screws, working with a hammer, and so on. Naturally, when performing such tasks, safety precautions must be very strictly observed, and this is what must be explained to the growing man.
A child's fulfillment of various household responsibilities is an important element in his overall upbringing. Small assignments serve to develop attention and concentration, more voluminous tasks teach to work and thoroughly prepare a teenager for future adult life.
