My daughter (13 next month) have weekly chores. She also gets a weekly allowance that is not tied to her chores. If she doesn't do her chores, I take away privileges. If she does the chore but it's not done properly, I make her start over from scratch. For example, she is responsible for folding and putting her laundry away, if I go into her room and closet and it doesn't look neat, she has to remove everything (not just the stuff she just put in) and reorganize her drawers and closet. She never wants to start over so we hardly ever have a problem.
