$1000 BabyGears Scholarship Program [Annual]

We here at BabyGears.com believe in the importance of starting the parenting journey the right way. This is why we try our best to help new parents with advice, how-to’s, tips, and tricks, so that they can grow their little ones into healthy children. We review crib mattresses, strollers, convertible car seats, and more, and select products of the highest quality in order to save parents time in this confusing market.

We also believe in giving back to the world as much as we can, including by helping people who are already growing up!

Would you like a hint to help you start thinking about what to write? Consider this:

When you were a kid, you probably hated doing chores. Helping your parents felt like a drag because this was less time for play. As parents, though, we realize that chores are not only important because they contribute to the work that needs to be done in a household, but they can help teach a child how to become a responsible adult through practice. With chores, a child can learn by doing.

As a college student, you are perhaps on the younger side of adulthood, and you might have been living with your parents not too long ago. You may be self-sufficient, but still remember what it’s like to resent housework imposed by others. From your unique “in-between” perspective, what can you contribute to this subject?

Your challenge is to do some research and come up with solutions that could help you when the time comes to take the parental role for yourself.

Students can ask any questions by contacting us.

Note: When you submit an essay, you are granting us the right to publish it online and use it for promotional purposes.
