LONDON, September 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Don't be fooled into thinking all children hate tidying up, an impressive 24% of British kids love helping parents clear away daily, a recent survey conducted by childrens bedroom furniture company, Feather & Black, reveals.  

But of course it also means there are many children less inclined to help! With 25% of British mums and dads reporting that children never help out at home. It seems the nation's youngsters are divided when doing the daily chores.

The frequency of British kids tidying their bedroom

  1. Never (25%) and every fortnight (25%)
  2. Daily (24%)
  3. Every couple of months (14%)
  4. Once a month (4%)

Interestingly, the parents' age also has an effect on children clearing up, with 48% of parents aged 18-34 years making sure the little mites do, compared to 14% of 55+. Moreover, 36% of the same parents aged 55+ say the children never bother to spring clean, compared to 12% of parents aged 18-34 years.

Adam Black, MD of Feather & Black, says: "If parents think pragmatically about bedroom storage, chores don't need to be a bore for kids. Feather & Black, has a range of childrens bedroom furniture that is functional, fun and stylish. Using our Salisbury childrens storage bed will certainly help mum and dad, it includes under bed drawers to hide the inevitable clutter and toys."
