My son gets points for doing his chores and he can redeem them for cash or video game time.

I pay them in hugs and kisses lol. My son is only 2. When I ask him to pick up his toys, I give him hugs and kisses. They'll suffice for now.

not any more since they either dont do them  or need constant reminders.

No, they live here, they can help take care of where they live.  I don't get paid for chores and when they're out on their own, they won't either.

Yes. I feel it teaches him to work towards things he wants. We use a ticket system. he gets 2 tickets a day for doing three chores. Each ticket is worth 1 dollar. If he doesn't  his chores he loses 2 and if he does the chores but whines or complains he only earns 1. Its pretty awesome.

no, not with money. if they have behaved all week, been respectful, and did their best in school I let them have movie night with treats and soda.  That's their one soda a week they get along with chips, candy, or ice cream.
