My kids have chores that they need to do because they are part of the family and they need to help - but then they have 'extra chores' that they can do to earn money - harder the job - the more they earn for it - caps at age in $ per week

No they should not. Children need to understand that sometimes you don't get paid for the work you do. Furthermore, we all live in the house, so it is all of our jobs to keep it up to par.

yes, i believe you should teach your kids to work for things in life, teach them the value of a dollar. I believe it gives them more respect for the parents and for themselves!!!

Not always. They should be required to do everyday jobs just because they are apart of the family. Extra jobs that take hard work and a lot of effort you may pay them IF they complete the job well. I don't believe in allowance. Money is EARNED!

Oh no i dont think allowances should be attached, you should not have to pay for something you expect from your child, maybe a small reward, but not money. like something maybe like 10 stickers = going out for ice cream on day after dinner... ya know

When you give you child a "chore" or i call it a "job" in the house it makes them feel like they are a part of the family dynamics and of value to the family. and that also teaches them responsiblity. Whatever you feel comfortable with! Good Luck

I know as a parent I am not consistant enough to give my daughter chores or an allowance. I know Bad Parent, but in that it is how I teach her about money that makes the difference.
