  • Told them the idea of doing chores is that we are a family that needs to take care of where we live as a group. They never had really hard chores, just stuff that helped the house run smoothly. At meal times I always asked for help with the table setting, mixing a salad, taking dishes to the sink, etc. I have a friend who rewards her kids with a special day once a month. Day trip to a park, museum, picnic,etc. Nothing expensive.

  • How old are they? I even give my 3 year old boys a this reward for helping cleaning the living room or their bedrooms. I usually just give them a dollar each but they're only 3 so they think they're millionaires haha. So a little money probably would be good:)

  • I sometimes rewarded my kids. basically it was their chore so they didn't get rewarded unless they did it on their own w/o my prodding...then they got a few bucks they hardly did chores w/o being reminded. but I have 4 kids so I can't afford allowance or I'd be broke!

  • When all the chores are done, take them on an outing. Spend some extra time playing a game or something with them.

  • depends on the age....for little ones stickers work...thats what my mom did with me and my sister as we got older the amount of money she gave us would go up a little bit. If there is a videogame they like you can say that they get an extra amount of time but that will only work if you already time how long they get for tv and things like that.
