Why do I have to do chores?

Here's the answer:

Chores are a chance to help your family.

Chores don't always seem fun, but your parents know God wants them to teach you to become a responsible adult. Chores help you to become responsible and to work together with your family. They also help us learn how to take care of ourselves. Some kids grow up without having to do chores, so they have a difficult time being responsible adults. They might have a messy house, unwashed clothes, unpaid bills, unhealthy meals, or even have trouble finding and keeping a job.

Your parents are trying to help you grow up well by giving you chores. They're also showing you that they trust you to do the jobs they give you. All kids should obey their parents and do their chores the best they can, because this pleases God.
