Our son is almost five and we were wondering if anyone had their child do chores to earn an allowance? What chores do you reccommend? How much do you give for a weekly/monthly allowance?

My son is 6. His chores are to pick up his toys and put his dirty clothes in the laundry basket. He does help at times with dusting,making his bed,vacuuming and putting his clean clothes away and pulling the garbage in the kitchen and bathroom. He normally gets $2 a week. But, if he is extremely helpful he will get $5.

Try FiftyP.com. It's a site to teach kids about finances and being charitable. The parent sets up the account and they make it fun for kids. It gives parents resources on paying allowance and has several chores and projects you can choose for your kids. Take a look at the chores and see if any of those work for you.
