Conscientious kids and daily chores Conscientious kids and daily chores

María Montessori was an educator in the 20th century that introduced a philosophy for successfully teaching kids through the use of logic, common sense, and patience for children to develop a peaceful and balanced personality. 

In order to achieve this, the Montessori schools created an age-appropriate chore chart for parents to have their children to practice them little by little. The majority are household chores that will help them develop their pragmatism, fine motor skills and sensory experience, making them feel useful and important.
