3. Do you leave a chores list for your kids? This could actually lead to their success later in life according to a new study.

Harvard researchers have found that people who had more childhood chores not only grow up to be happier but are more successful and are better employees.

Chores help people learn at a young age the value of work and making contributions to a group.

The study also suggests that chores help make people better team players and ready to work with others.

4. Pizza Hut is looking to make its customers feel nostalgic. The company is bringing back its vintage loco with the signature red roof.
