Re: Chores for your dc?
Hereís my $.02 worth. I think kids need an allowance that way when they want something, they can learn to save up for it. They should also do certain chores as part of their belonging to the family. I donít get paid to do the dishes for instance, its my job as a wife. (dh does other chores)
Now, if they want to earn EXTRA $$ they can do extra chores or mow the neighbors lawn etc.
I remember my allowance as a kid. I was LITTLE small enough that I had to stand on a chair to reach the top of the dresser where it was kept. Every week my mom put a bunch of change (which prob amounted to $2) in an ashtray. Every day, I could take however much $$ I wanted, but when the $$ was gone for that week, it was gone.
