Counter for the Case Against Chores Abstract Jane Smiley attempts to give parents advice about household chores in her essay The Case Against Chores, which was featured in an issue of Harper’s magazine in 1995. I think that Jane had a somewhat privileged childhood; if it weren’t for finding the way to hard work through working with horses, she would most likely not have a clue of how to operate in the adult world. I grew up in a house with a chore list, and it helped me on my path to be a functioning adult and mother. Agreed that most children would celebrate Jane Smiley’s case against chores, but is it any good? In her essay, The Case against Chores, Jane Smiley shows her contempt for chores by giving some opinions that I simply do not agree with.

Her father, Lyman Beecher, and many siblings such as Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin, and pastor Edward Beecher, who organized the first anti-slavery society in Illinois. She was educated at home, before being sent to a private school for young women, which taught limited subjects mostly on fine arts and languages.

She was the oldest out of eight siblings; she had both 3 brothers and 3 sisters. Due to the many siblings she had, she wasn’t able to attend college, thus being able to meet my grandfather Clearance in the year 1955. Together they had a total of six kids, in which my grandmother stayed home and cared for them, while my grandfather open and ran his own personal construction business.

The Dirty Little Secret: Poverty In America Jane A. Easter The current reality in the United States of America is that the level of disparity between classes is growing and not in a good way.
