Successful Young Adults

Mom reports that a magazine read at the pediatrics office held some "new" insight into raising children based on a recent study at the University of Minnesota. The grand new idea?

Using measures of individual's success such as completion of education, getting started on a career path, IQ, relationships with family and friends, and not using drugs, and examining a child's involvement in household tasks... Rossmann determined that the best predictor of young adults' success in their mid-20s was that they participated in household tasks when they were three or four.

It's laughable what research feels the need to confirm.
