Are chores an important part of raising your children?

My biggest fear is that there is no PMS and that this is my personality.

Regular chores are part of living in the house. Extra/special chores are for money.
AMG, Shmi and Cricket like this.

I am not one of those who believe - broadly speaking - that women are better than men. We have not wrecked railroads, nor corrupted legislatures, nor done many unholy things that men have done; but then we must remember that we have not had the chance.- Jane Addams

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." Click here to enlarge

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 Click here to enlarge I check his bank stmts to make sure he's not robbing savings for a stupid Steam game or something Click here to enlarge

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..Click here to enlarge

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. Click here to enlarge

They have special chores for when they want to earn some money. I think it's a great way to teach them that hard work is rewarding. For regular chores, no. Because it's something that we all must do. And I also treat or reward them every now and then but I don't say that it's because they did this or that.
