Giving them Responsibility

Kids loves acting like adults or their parents which means they enjoy taking on responsibilities. Kids tend to find pleasure in daily chores like dusting, tidying toys etc. and these  interest in simple chores helps child growth and teaches them to take  responsibilities which is  important for  a person’s early development.
