  • We don't give money for chores we believe that you are part of the house and these are things that need to be done to keep the house clean. If they are going out with friends we do give them money for that sometimes. If they want a video game or something they save their money to buy it.

    Good Luck!

  • Part of being a part of a family is doing your share of work around the house. Every day chores do not get any money (emptying dishwasher, feeding/walking dog, setting/clearing table, cleaning bathrooms, keeping their rooms clean). If they were to wash the windows or something like that, then YES we'd probably give them some money for it. Maybe $5.

  • I would buy the clothes because that is a neccessity. But if they are old enough, they should get a job or if not old enough, give them harder tasks at home.
