In a world that is constantly evolving, certain parenting methods can seem outdated. Parents may feel like they are now expected to be a little less strict on their little ones and children aren’t expected to help out as much as they once were, sometimes leading to misbehaviour amongst children.

Pep and Perk and their creators encourage parents to engage their toddlers and kids to help out with simple household activities with their new album release - ‘Helping Out!

Helping Out! is a collection of catchy tunes that will help make the daily routine more fun! From washing hands and brushing teeth, to cleaning up a room, they’ve got you and your little one covered with some amazing new songs. Put on “Scoot Scoot” for a fun way to get out the door, or jam out to a rocking new cover of “You’ve Got A Friend In Me”.

Why encourage your kids to help out?

Encouraging your kids to help out from an early age can have numerous developmental benefits that arise from these seemingly ordinary tasks. Establishing a sense of responsibility in children from a young age not only contributes to the smooth functioning of a household but also fosters the development of essential life skills. There are numerous benefits associated with children actively participating in household chores, we’ve outlined some of the simple activities that your toddlers can be introduced to below.
