sheryl Posted September 21, 2012 Share Posted September 21, 2012 My dd 13 is wanting an allowance. We don't do allowance, but will pay her for certain jobs. My dh and I believe that every child has age appropriate daily "expectations", such as: making bed, feeding pets, and light household chores, like: emptying dishwasher, folding clothes, etc. Then there are weekly chores, such as: grooming pets, cleaning cat litter box. She does not get paid for these daily/weekly "expectations" to run a household. We are ready to pay her for "jobs". Give me some idesas. So far dd and I have: Wash cars Pick up sticks in yard Rake leaves At what point do you define chore as a paid job? For example, cleaning the bathtub or toilets domestic skills and necessary for running a home for the family. These may be more labor intensive than running sweeper or dusting. Share your ideas on the definition you use and PLEASE ADD TO MY LIST! :D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
