Chores and Allowances in our house

So Shannon over at Rocks in my Dryer has aske people to post about chores and allowances. Here is the chart we follow at our house. It seems to really work well. All through the week my son does good deeds and chores around the house. Each Sunday morning we get up, add up the magnets he's earned and give him a nickle for each one (If it's a bonus, he gets ten cents). Then he chooses what he's going to give Jesus at church that morning, what he's going to save and what he wants to spend. We really enjoy this because it teaches him tithing, saving and spending. If you're interested in the chore chart below, check out www.empoweringkids.net.

There are 160 magnets in the pack

You can write your kid's names on the chart but we chose not to so we can use it with our younger son when the oldest is past this stage. Check them out, they're awesome!!

Awesome post, I'm going to check out the site tonight. Victoria is really good about cleaning up (remember she has my OCD of cleaning.) So right now she usually does everything I ask (I know rare) but I also know it won't last forever - so this will be something to keep on hand! Tks for sharing!
