As parents, we want our children far form problems, so they can study and prepare to be responsable and good adults to society.
Although there are no recipes for this, psychology has studied the things that successful men and women have in common, and they have discvovered that many of these things have to do with their parents and the way they were educated

Doing loundry, getting out the trash, washing dishes, making the bed, cleaning their room, and many other things can be made by all children without any problem.
2. Teach them social skills:
Help others, understand their feelings, learn to solve problems for themselves, among other skills I t will reduce the possibilities of them being arrested, falling into alcoholism or crime.
