It is so important to get our children to help out and do chores around the house! Although it is always easier for us parents to do things ourselves, it is not sending our children the right message
So here are my top 5 reasons our children should help out around the house:
1. Helping at home teaches children important life skills (such as doing laundry, cooking and cleaning).
2. Children who pitch in around the house become better team players, co-workers, and eventually life partners. (Thank goodness my husband grew up doing chores as he now shares the housework with me.)
3. Kids actually love to help out, as it empowers them and bolsters their self-esteem. They take pride in feeling needed and important within the family.
4. Enabling kids to do things for themselves (such as pack their own knapsack for school) fosters personal responsibility and independence.
5. When your children help out, it reduces Mommy’s work load of tedious tasks, and frees up more time for families to do the fun stuff!
Being the third son of the family and not bred to any trade, my head began to be filled very early with rambling thoughts. My father, who was very ancient, had given me a competent share of learning, as far as house-education and a country free school generally go, and designed me for the law; but I would be satisfied with nothing but going to sea; and my inclination to this led me so strongly against the will, nay, the commands of my father, and against all the entreaties and persuasions of my mother and other friends, that there seemed to be something fatal in that propensity of nature, tending directly to the life of misery which was to befall me. My father, a wise and grave man, gave me serious and excellent counsel against what he foresaw was my design. He called me one morning into his chamber, where he was confined by the gout, and expostulated very warmly with me upon this subject. He asked me what reasons, more than a mere wandering inclination, I had for leaving father's house and my native country, where I might be well introduced, and had a prospect of raising my fortune by application and industry, with a life of ease and pleasure. He told me it was men of desperate fortunes on one hand, or of aspiring, superior fortunes on the other, who went abroad upon adventures, to rise by enterprise, and make themselves famous in undertakings of a nature out of the common road; that these things were all either too far above me or too far below me; that mine was the middle state, or what might be called the upper station of low life, which he had found, by long experience, was the best state in the world, the most suited to human happiness, not exposed to the miseries and hardships, the labour and sufferings of the mechanic part of mankind,
I' m glad to hear from you.You asked me about my schooling.Now I will write about it.
There are 2000 students studying in our school and 45 of them are my classmates.All of us woked very hard and we are like a family.My major classes are Chinese,maths,English,physics,chemistry,politics and PE.My school is clourful.Everyday I wake up at 6:00.After half an hour 's perparation,I have breakfast.Then I ride to school at about 8:00.Four classes are arranged in the morning and two are in the afternoon.What' more ,I can relax myself after the classes.In the evening,I like watching TV but I can do that for only 30 minutes because I have homework to do.At 10:00,my mother will say "It is time to sleep!"
In a word ,I like this kind of life.
I hope I can hear you soon.

Second he should understanding and we can support whenever we have difficulties. Finally he should share not only our happiness but also our sadness. I hope that you can make true friends.
Nowadays,people are faced with serious problems.One third of the world's people don't have enough clean water.I think water is the most important thing for human beings to live.I suggest we should save water and protect it from pollution.Not only the water,but also the air is polluted.More and more diseases are caused by polluted air.Itis really a big problem.I hope fatories would pay more attention to the air condition in future.And it is also everyone's responsibility to care for our environment.当今人们面临着严重的问题.世界上有三分之一的人没有干净的水.我认为水是人类赖以生存的最重要的条件.我建议大家节约用水,并防止水污染,不仅是水,空气也被污染了.由空气污染引起的疾病也越来越多.这的确是个大问题.我希望以后工厂要注意空气质量.关心环境问题,也是我们每个人的责任.
