Do you give your child money for doing chores around the house?
I go back and forth on whether this is a good idea or not. Some people say that kids should do chores as part of being part of the family and that they shouldn't be paid. I know for my D14, money is the most effective method for motivating her to do her chores.
For my eldest, who is 14, I set up a system. She has a jar with 6 buttons in it. Each button represents a dollar. She is supposed to do the dishes every day. Whenever she fails to do them, a button is removed from the jar. At the end of the week, I count up how many buttons are left in the jar and that's how much money she gets for the week.
So you do think it's a good idea to pay children to do chores? Why or why not?
