Re: Chores for your dc?
My boys have chores..BUT not for $$$...I mean, who is going to PAY them to take the garbage out or wash the dishes when their an adult???? Its part of being a family....
We start givnig out chores as soon as possible, usually by age 2yrs at the latest, so they are used to it and its not a culture shock later.
Our kids daily chores:
take out garbage
Our weekly chores:
take garbage cans to curb
help put away laundry
OK, and for allowance...they do get an allowance...they get thier age X 2.
So, our 11yr old get $22, 6yr=$12, 3yr=$6, 10mth old=$2
It goes into their bank account. They pay for any sports fees etc out of thier $$ too.....
