The 18-year-old, who recently signed a new long-term contract at Anfield, has insisted that his mother, who has moved up from London to be with her son on Merseyside, keeps him grounded.
"She tells me off for being lazy, for not helping around the house, but I'm becoming better at that," Sterling told the club's official website.
"She wants me to brush the stairs and help out in the kitchen, it's hard work. She gives me stick but I do my bit. I cleaned the living room a couple of days ago."
The England international is preparing to face Wigan Athletic in the Premier League this Saturday.
