Just wondering what sort of chores everyone has their kids do and what ages they are? Do they get paid for doing their chores or are the chores just a requirement of life?
So yeah, what kind of chores do your kids do?
My son has regular required chores like cleaning his room, putting his clothes away etc which he doesn't get paid for, but I also give him the opportunity to do other jobs around the house for money (a quarter here, .50 cents there), so that I can hopefully teach him the value of working for something (even though we don't get paid to do those things in real life, but what real job can a 5yr old actually have?), and the very important value of saving money and learning that if you spend your .50 cents today its gone, but if you save it, and save up all your money you can get something much "better".
I want him to know the value of money and that it doesn't just appear when you want it, but you have to work for it, and save it in order to get the stuff that you want.
I don't think I'd ever pay for grades, but definitely acknowledge the good job in some way
