When your kids balk, science is on your side.
Want your kids to grow up to be successful? Make them do chores. When they balk (and trust me: they will probably balk), you can tell them that scientific researchsupports you.
It sounds great, and it's true--but there is a catch. (We'll get to that in a minute.) For now, the science.
In the Harvard Grant Study, the longest running longitudinal study in history, (spanning 75 years and counting--from 1938 to the present), researchers identified two things that people need in order to be happy and successful:
The first? Love.
The second? Work ethic.
