How much allowance do you give your kids, if any, for doing chores?
I had written a whole hub on age appropriate chores and payments. But I will say this one bit of advice. We try to make sure what we pay our children is realistic to the real world. Paying your children $10 to do something that takes 10 minutes will not prepare them for that first minimum wage job, where after taxes, they will be lucky to make $5 an hour.
no, i don't pay them with allowance but with food they like to eat or drink. When i ask my kids to help washing the car, they don't ask for anything but i do give them their favorite ice-cream after everything is done. They are delighted and willingly to offer their help anytime you need them.
I think paying your children for helping the family to function as a unit can get tricky. I've watched grown adults that were raised receiving money for all of their chores still Expect payment from their elderly parents to help them do Anything! Almost like their brain was trained to always expect something in return for doing the smallest of deeds that they should Want to do for nothing.
