A law proposed in Spain would require that children help out with household chores and caring for the home.

It would apply to all family members under the age of 18, but different age groups would have varying degrees of responsibility.

The proposed measure would also make it required by law that young people show respect for their parents and siblings and become an active participant in family life.

Good behavior is expected while attending school as well.

Teachers, administrators, and staff are to be shown courtesy and the learning process is to be embraced with a positive attitude.

Further, breaking a school rule would be the equivalent of breaking the law.

The draft doesn’t specify punishments, so it’s unclear what would happen to a child if they refused to fold the laundry or rolled their eyes during class.

Spain’s proposed home and housework laws are part of a larger piece of legislation concerning the country’s youth.

Also in the proposal is the establishment of a list of known pedophiles who have been barred from working around children.

Failure to report evidence of child abuse is also listed as an offense.
