A new set of regulations for primary and middle school students have been released by the Ministry of Education. Some practical regulations were added into the new adaption, including doing housework and not comparing in eating and clothes. Many Chinese families don’t ask their children to take on regular chores. Some think it’s easier to do the chores themselves. Some feel children don’t do the jobs well enough anyhow. Some parents feel their children are too busy with their studies. Other parents can’t see the value of teaching children to do chores. What do you think? Are children in your country required to do housework?

Since as long as I can remember, I was expected to help around the home.
It build self-confidence, teaches important life skills, promotes character traits such as co-operation, patience, maturity and responsibility.

how are children going to learn to improve if they don't do something?
it is like expecting children to be perfect first time, which is totally unrealistic.
making mistakes is a valuable life lesson - China is the only place I have encountered people unwilling to try new skills (and make mistakes in the process). I had one student (22 years) who never learnt to ride a bicycle because he was afraid of falling off.
it was laughable if it wasn't so sad.

silly question, of cause they should help out in the home.

If they do a poor job then show them how to do it well and keep sending them back to do it again until they get it right, many kids will deliberately do a poor job if it gets them out of doing it again.

Parents are parents, not servants.

Many Chinese nowadays have the wrong attitude of failing to instill the values of hard work and responsibility in their kids.  A nation of spoiled and entitled brats is cause of many of society problems.

As families members, kids should do it absolutely. Besides, no one parents would expect them to do something beyond their capabilities.
