Are chores an important part of raising your children?

Should you pay your kids to do their chores?

Regular chores are part of living in the house. Extra/special chores are for money.

What Twinkle said. DS gets an allowance not tied to chores because he needed to learn how to use money, save money, blah blah but also because "Here's some money. Do what you want with it. You get more next payday. Don't ask me for money." :crack

He also has his own checking & savings acct, part of his allowance goes to savings, which also saves him if his math or brain goes foggy & he overdraws :twitch I check his bank stmts to make sure he's not robbing savings for a stupid Steam game or something :lol

Now that he's in HS, I upped his allowance - he's in arts magnet with lots of afterschool activities & challenging academics, and after-school jobs are discouraged. But I also tied his "raise" to good behavior, etc. It's working well so far.

Learn to save money
 
It is important for the kids to learn how to make, save and spend money. And that it does not come for free..:vs_smile:

I think there are other chores that don't need payment and other chores would have payment or should I label it as a reward.

I think rewards are better for children. In my case, I treat my kids outside or give what they want but definitely not money. :)
