We don't give an allowance. The kids have chores they are expected to do as members of this family. That includes things like cleaning their room, picking up their things from the rest of the house, clearing their dishes from the table, feeding the dog, folding & putting away their laundry. On weekends they assist me with cleaning the bathroom, vacuuming and dusting.
Anyway, my 9 year old son has decided that he wants to earn an allowance and he's coming up with additional chores above and beyond his normal ones. Things like unloading the dishwasher, picking up dog poo, etc.
So, I'm curious for those who do give an allowance, what is the "going rate" and how many chores do they get paid for?
I have a feeling the other boys will want in on this as well, so I'm a little leery of it - don't want to end up paying a fortune! LOL
