Earlier this year I was listening to Radio 4 when they reported that a draft bill had been approved in the Spanish Parliament requiring children to help out with the housework. In my slightly sleep deprived state I wasn’t sure if I had misheard the presenter, so I found the article, originally published in the ABC newspaper.
The report confirms that the draft bill requires children to fulfil certain obligations, including “co-responsibility in caring for the home and performing household tasks according to their age and regardless of their gender.” Children must also “take part in family life, and respect their parents and siblings.”
As always, I would be really interested to hear what others think, and if you get your children to help you with the housework or not. Take the Peepoc poll to vote, and leave a comment here, or on Peepoc to let me know.
