hey! so i was looking for some input/ suggestions. this kind of popped up cause we are finishing up our last lego set. ds has been all about these lego sets and has been doing fairly well keeping them together and off the floor. and to be honest, i've been quite proud of him doing all these and now on his own!!
i am not the "oh lets go buy toys" type. in fact, ive been kind of against it BUT his bday is in december, so both major gift giving occasions take place in the same month for him. and now that he's older there are things he really wants. like these sets. so i want him to have the oppertunity to get them AND learn about saving money at the same time.
right now im thinking just a few things... daily: toys out of the livingroom and room clean before bed (everything off floor... toys away, clothes in hamper etc). then some weekly chores. right now i have help with laundry haha. im thinking about adding sweeping the kitchen. any suggestions? he has a baby brother or sister on the way so the extra help will be awesome lol, but mostly i want to give him an opportunity to earn money so he can decide how to spend it.
also im thinking like $2 a week. nothing crazy. enough that its SOMETHING but that he will still have to save (in the summer he wants ice cream from the ice cream man a lot lol). some people are anti allowance, but he's always willing to help... shoot he asks to help. anyone have any positive or negative experiences with this?
thanks!! (and i didnt expect this to be so long lol)
