Never heard of it. I say and they do. There is nothing regular just some days I ask them to do and some I don’t.

But what is it like a chart that they earn something afterwards. I’m not against allowances to help them learn about finances, being responsible and being accountable as well as a good work ethic.

Basically it’s list of chores like put toys away make bed brush teeth before bed. If they do it than they get a little suprise

I'm actually starting a chore chart this week. It needs to exist in my house.

I wish I had done this with my older kids, at least some type of system to hold them accountable for their own chores. I have done some reading on this because I also have a 3 year-old and I would like to find ways to motivate her instead of always fighting to get things done. I found this article very helpful. I don't think there is anything wrong with rewarding children for a job well done, it will also teach them some lessons in budgeting. Blessings to you!

I don't. I'm constantly telling them that they need to clean their room.

I bought a really cute one on wayfair.com

Didn't work in my house, but looks nice on my kitchen wall.
