I am finding I can not keep up with all the cleaning and even though my son is a great help when i ask it would be nice for him to have set things to do to help me out. What are some suggestions of chores for the school week and weekend for a ten year old. And what is the going rate? We are a bit tight for money but I wouldnt want to under pay either, thanks!!

Have him just start "wiping" down the bathrooms & cleaning mirrors. You could even have him dust. (Those swifter dusters are great!) You could have him Vacuum certain rooms on Thursdays. ( I chose Thursday because it's close to the weekend & my son is usually with his pals on Fridays after school) The bad news is we don't pay our kids to help around the house..sorry! BUT~We do pay them for doing yard work or doing another chore that wasn't theirs to do. As far as rate..I don't think you can under charge them. The finished outcome of their idea of cleanliness will probably not be what you where hoping for anyway. (ha) sorry I couldn't help out more on this question but I wish you the best

Next question overall
Do you check on your teens to see if they're sexting?
