Moms all around the world want their children to be independent and able to do things for themselves. However, when it comes to housekeeping chores, parents often do not allow their children to help out around the house and to learn responsibility. But at what age can we expect a child to set and clear the table or take out the garbage?

We at Bright Side studied this question thoroughly and came up with a handy infographic based on Maria Montessori's study of child development. This guide will help you divvy up the household chores fairly and keep expectations reasonable.
