Allowance Contract I know allowances are controversial, but I'm a VERY big fan with my own son (daughter's still too young) -- it really works for him. And the contract was a big part of it. He is so proud of himself when he buys the whole family ice cream. I like that this contract addresses how allowance money will be spent.
THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR! You do not get paid for chores because it's an expected part of being a family. Allowance is teaching children how to manage money. I have started this with the kids, the chore list doesn't get money but the commission chart does! There are different chores on each. AND she incorporates tithing and savings! Brilliant!
