Spanish children may soon find themselves obliged by law to do household chores. 
The Spanish government are drafting a Child Protection Law, which may see children under the age of 18 being legally obliged to help out around the house "in accordance with their age and regardless of their gender."
Spanish teenagers may not be skiving off emptying the dishwasher if this law comes out.
The bill also focuses on the treatment of the family by children under 18 saying they must "participate in family life" and show "respect for their parents and siblings ... any other relative or people with a stable relationship with the core family unit." 
If it is introduced, it will also state that children must abide by school rules and "maintain a positive attitude about learning."
The new law doesn't outline any punishment for children who don't abide by the rules in the family home.
