Since my oldest got a job and my other son has been making money working with dad, that left my daughter feeling like a bum. So I told her she could do chores and get paid. I've tried this before and they very nicely told me they didn't need the money that bad. Don't get me wrong, they'll help out with anything that I ask but they never really did big chores regularly. Now the girl has some work she has to do each week. I told her a dollar a chore. She fell for it! So if she mops the kitchen floor....$1. Vacuums.....$1. Dusts......$1. She's up to $5 this week. I'm liking this! I might even tip her!
Now I see why the kids would sit and watch me do all the work, it's kind of fun to watch someone else doing all this! If I could just get her to do the laundry, I'd be in heaven!
