See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Do your kiddos have one? If so, what are their ages & what do you have on their charts?
Elijah (age 5) has become interested in money, and how much things cost, like toys he wants. SO & I figured he is old enough to start doing chores & earning his own money so he can save for things that he wants.
I was browsing Pinterest to see if I could find any cool ideas, to kind of keep him interested. He came in & said,
"Cool Mom, is that to see how many good days I have?"
I said, "Kind of, its your responsibility chart. You need to start helping me out around the house doing stuff."
He replied, "Aw Mom, I dont want to. I'm just a kid! Don't break my heart!" lol
I was thinking about doing things that he does already. This is what I sent to SO, it may change depending on what he thinks. He'd earn 10 cents per chore, up to a dollar a day.
