This week we are talking about paying children for chores. In the past we have talked about motivation and praise for children, but this reader request sheds a new light on it. Check it out!
"What do you think about rewarding children for chores? On one hand I feel that children should be expected to do chores, and shouldn't be motivated only by rewards. I fear that by rewarding children for chores, they will be unwilling to help out unless they can receive something from it. Work should be a part of family life. On the other hand, I think it would be a great time to be able to teach children about money and how to save, pay tithing, etc."
So help her out!
