Partially but children must be taught responsibilities and good work habits as play and fun times are part of growing up but so is work part of everyuones life but not to the extent of getting a paying job and being child slave labor

Actually, many kids benefit from having some responsibilities at home. They can get a sense of belonging and contributing to the family, and therefore develop a feeling of competence. But, it depends on the personality of the child and how it's presented by the parent. Nobody really likes being told what to do, so it takes creativity to invite a child to participate in family life and responsibilities without coercian. And, lets face it, there are chores nobody really likes doing, so to avoid a kid feeling bad, it's okay to acknowlege that some tasks are just not that interesting, but none the less have to get done.

No I don't. If children don't do chores, how would they ever learn to care for themselves, their belongings, their homes? Not teaching your child how to do everyday "chores" in life, would be bad parenting.
