Four Reasons Kid’s Chores Matter In An Organized Home. Summer’s always our big time to change household routines and structure.  Since our twins have autism, they’re not fond of change, so we try to make sure that everything else is pretty relaxed at the same time.  I will be the first to tell you that at any age–ANY age–it’s easier to do the blasted chore yourself.  I mean, really.
