Health Tip: Giving Children Chores

(HealthDay News) -- Establishing chores for children, even young ones, can teach the importance of being part of a team and helping out. It may also build self-esteem, experts say.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests these household chores for children of most any age:

  • Helping out with laundry, and putting away their own clothes and toys.

  • Dusting, sweeping, vacuuming or mopping.

  • Setting and clearing the table.

  • Washing, drying and putting away dishes.

  • Feeding, walking and cleaning up after family pets.

  • Packing their lunches for school.

  • Helping to make dinner.

  • Working in the yard, washing the car or helping to clean bathrooms.
