A quarter of children aged five to 16 do nothing to help around the house, a survey shows.
For those who do pitch in with the chores, in one in five cases this means simply tidying their bedroom.
The study also found that while parents typically spent four hours a week doing housework when they were young, their children can’t even manage half that amount.
Three out of five children are rewarded with treats or pocket money for helping, according to the study by Vileda, a cleaning products firm.
