Teen contributions

Adolescents who feel they play an integral role in their family have a greater sense of responsibility and well-being. They have higher self-esteem, are more motivated at school and report being happier too. Certainly chores are a big part of it, but contributing to the family also means participating in family decision making (like food choices and rules around the house). Even if their suggestions aren’t followed, teens feel valued and connected to the family when they know their ideas, feelings and perspectives are being considered.
