It's spring break for him (he's 12) and last week I gave him a list of about 100 chores to do. He has all the time in the world to do them and he doesn't even have to do most of them if he doesn't want to, but I said I'd pay him 5-20 bucks for all the different ones.

He just wants this xbox thing and 2 games that cost a ridiculous amount so he's working almost night and day, a lot of time in the yard or on the house.

Now my neighbor just came over and said she knows what I've been doing and she's going to call CPS on me for child slave labor!

What do I Do? Is she crazy or do I stop him from doing so much?

I would have told her to stfu and mind her own damn business. You are not making him to do them he is doing them to earn something that hr wants.

Quoting emandab:

Whatever troll.

A 12 year old painting a fence, and clearing weeds has to be a troll?

If she does call he is plenty old enough to explain why he is working hard.

You aren't making him do it, he's doing it because he wants to, he wants something so badly that he is willing to work hard for it. I would be proud of your ds. Your neighbor has no idea what's really going on , just ignore her.
