Chores and kids?
Saturday, March 10, 2012
I have a 12 year old daughter who is more than helpful, but I am not sure I know what types of chores are appropriate for her age that will also be helpful in the real world.
Right now...she does dishes (by hand), cleans her bathroom, cleans her room, ocassionally walks her dog, ocassionally helps me make meals...(she can make mac n cheese and ramen noodles, but we don't keep that in the house much!), most of the time if I'm doing something or feel she needs something to do...I have her help on various things.
What types of chores do I pay her for? I don't feel she should get paid for the basics...like cleaning her room, putting clothes away, dishes, etc because those are life skills and no one is going to pay her to do that when she gets her own place later in life.
What is a good price for chores...per chore or per week too?
