A Study Found the Magic Word to Get Your Kids to Do Chores


This is supposedly science . . . but if it actually works, it sounds more like MAGIC.
 
A new study found the ONE WORD that will get your kids to do CHORES.  And it is . . . "helper."  You can thank researchers from Stanford, the University of Washington, and the University of California in San Diego.
 
They studied 150 kids between three and six, and asked them for help . . . using different phrases, to see which one was the most effective.
 
When they said things like, quote, "Some children choose to be helpers" or, quote, "You could be a helper if someone has a job for you," the kids were more likely to do the chores than when the researchers asked them for help.
 
The researchers say, quote, "When you use the noun 'helper', [it's] a description that points to a child's basic character and identity, [so] they're more motivated to prove that it's true."
