|However, this being said, I do think the possibility of $10 a week too much until they are in their teens. I also agree with you that your girls should have their own responsibilities without the complete expectation of payment for everything. I think a bit more compromise might work. For instance, as an adult you have responsibilities that you are paid for and those that are simply required of you. I think that would work for your girls too. So I would say some tasks like taking your dishes to the sink, making your bed, tidying up your room, and putting their laundry away be things that they are required to do without payment.|

When I am not sure of my own motives with my stepson, I ask myself, how will I deal with this when my bioson gets older? I surprise my self and catch myself being unfair. ask him if a listening system is what you will use with his own son when he is old enough. I'm guessing he isn't planning to.
