Question Of The Week

Question of the week: Do you just give your children an allowance or do you make them earn it?

When I was growing up we were just given an allowance. My mom did all of the cleaning but we did have chores like setting the table at night. But my mom always had to tell us to do it.

In my house I make my kids earn their allowance. They have a chart that is posted on the fridge with the jobs they are expected to do and the dollar amount of each job. For example my oldest daughter earns $2 for cleaning the upstairs bathroom. If I have to tell her to clean her bathroom $1 is deducted from her allowance.
